Additional Information

Facilities, including elsan disposal and drinking water, are available immediately south of Bridge 114, approximately 200 metres from the site. There are refuse bins 100 metres south of Bridge 114 at Brampton Wharf, adjacent to the 14 day moorings, and these are shared with visiting boats and the general public.

There is no designated car park at this site so moorers must make their own arrangements.

The moorings run along a wide tar and stone towpath, with a grass strip next to the edge.

IMPORTANT NOTES: There is a popular 2 hour 'shoppers' mooring next to the Tesco entrance, immediately adjacent to these moorings.

The towpath was upgraded in 2005 between Leighton Buzzard and Bletchley and is now part of the National Cycle Network. It is also part of the Greensand Ridge Walk.
