Great Bedwyn (Above Lock) L1

Great Bedwyn is a small village on the Kennet & Avon Canal and River Dun in Wiltshire.

The Canal & River Trust provides 22 mooring spaces in the area, both above and below Church Lock. Above the lock, the mooring site extends for approximately 210m and provides space for 12 craft moored on the off-side bank.

We have recently undertaken works on this site to install new mooring jetties, which are spaced at 5 metre intervals along the moorings.

Additional Information

Facilities, including a car park, pump-out, water point, elsan and a refuse compound can be found within the main car park area, below Church Lock (on the towpath side, opposite the moorings). These facilities are not a dedicated facility for the Great Bedwyn mooring customers, as they are open for use by passing boats, as well as other canal users.

There is a large car park by Bridge 95, Great Bedwyn Bridge, and a smaller car park by Bridge 97, Mill Bridge. These car parks are for public use so spaces for moorers cannot be reserved or guaranteed.

Access is from the main car park by Great Bedwyn Bridge (95) along the towpath towards Church Lock (64). These moorings are on the off-side of the canal, to the east of Church Bridge (96) and through a wooden gate.
