Additional Information

Canal & River Trust facilities, including a water point, elsan and refuse disposal, are immediately adjacent to the mooring site, on the north side, and are shared with passing boaters. The facilities block and waste bins are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement”

There are mooring rings at this site but pins may be needed dependent on boat length. The site is 158 metres long and is currently occupied by 9 boats.

The site does not have car parking so moorers must make alternative arrangements.

Access to the mooring site is via a gate to the rear of the White Bull Pub immediately off the A6.

Keys for the gate on site are available to purchase for a refundable deposit of £50 each.

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.
