Burs cough Bridge
The nearest Canal & River Trust facilities, including elsan, water, refuse and toilets, are at Burscough Bridge which is approximately one mile away at Bridge 32a.
The pathway along the moorings is a public right of way.
Car parking is not available at this site so customers must make their own arrangements.
Mooring rings are installed on site but mooring pins may be needed dependent on boat length and the spacing of rings.
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.
The site can be seen from the towpath opposite but access to the site must be arranged with the mooring coordinator.
