Additional Information

The water point is for the use of all boaters. The refuse and elsan disposal facilities are on the access road and are passed on approach to the moorings. The nearest pump out facility is at Kingswood Junction, approximately five miles south.

Mooring rings are installed at this site and are spaced at 5 metre intervals.

There is restricted parking space for 5 cars next to the old lock keepers cottage, near the site access. Spaces cannot be guaranteed or reserved.

This is a leisure site and is determined by us to be a mooring site for the storage of boats between leisure use, customers may well spend weekends on this site, and occasionally longer periods, but it is not sold as, or intended to be suitable for long term residential use. This site does not have local authority planning consent for residential use, neither does it have the level of facilities and service expected of such a mooring. As such the offer that we have is only intended to meet the needs of a leisure boater.
