The nearest refuse facilities are 1.5 miles south of the site, near to Weedon cemetery. A drinking water point is available at Stowe Hill, a further half mile south. Buckby Top Lock has elsan, drinking water and refuse disposal facilities and is approximately three and a half miles north.

Please be aware, the aforementioned facilities are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.

There is no designated car parking for this site so moorers must make alternative arrangements.

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.
