Fisheries Lock L1

Fisheries Lock is conveniently located on the Grand Union Canal on the edge of the town of Hemel Hempstead.

With a traditional canal side pub nearby, a wealth of picturesque country walks, as well as good road and rail links, it is one of our most popular mooring sites in Hertfordshire.

The site is approximately 200m long and provides space for up to 10 vessels moored on the off-side bank.

Nearest Road

The moorings are adjacent to Bridge 149 on Fishery Road, opposite the Fishery Inn pub. Bridge 149 is approx. 200 metres from the A4251 roundabout at Boxmoor, opposite Hemel Hempstead railway station.

There is a private road leading down to the site but access is also available using the steps next to Bridge 149.

Hemel Hempstead town centre is approximately one mile east of the moorings and provides a wide range of shops and services.
