Monk Meadow L1

Located within a mile of Gloucester City Centre, the Basin at Monk Meadow was opened in 1892 originally to provide quay-space for the timber trade. It now serves as an off-line marina and lies close to local shops and amenities, as well as the fascinating Gloucester Waterways Museum.

The layout of the moorings allows for small and large craft, with berth sizes at 8m, 18.5m and 20m in length. With 40 berths, it is one of our largest sites in the South West of England.

Nearest Road

The site is off the A430 (Hempsted Lane/Secunda Way roundabout), approximately half a mile south of Gloucester Docks.

There are other facilities, including toilets and showers at Harbour House in Gloucester Docks, 100 metres north of Llanthony Bridge. There are also boat repair facilities in Gloucester Docks.

Access onto these pontoon moorings is for key holders only and keys can be purchased from the Moorings Manager upon payment of a £50 deposit for each key, which is refundable upon return.

The mooring site is approximately one mile from Gloucester city centre.

IMPORTANT NOTES: The land surrounding Monk Meadow Basin is earmarked for re-development. Demolition works started in Dec-17 and the clearance phase of the development land is expected to take 12 months. During this period there may be some disturbance to mooring customers.

No vehicular access will be permitted during the demolition phase of the re-development of this land, which is likely to take a year. Therefore, mooring customers will need to park off-site.

Once the building site has been cleared, the construction of the residential dwellings will begin, which is scheduled to take place over the following 2 years, for completion by the end of 2020.
