Additional Information

The water point can be found at the end of the site, towards Bridge 48 which is due east of the site.

This canal has a shallow profile. and you may need a plank to access/egress your boat at certain points along the moorings

This mooring is suited to a cruiser type craft but can accommodate narrowboats, however we recommend trying the boat before purchase due to depth issues at the site.

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.
