Car Parking - an open car park provided by the local waterway, moorers can use it but they do not have any priority over others at this site

The water point, two showers, toilet and elsan disposal are in the sanitary block, to the eastern side of Bridge 156, approximately 50 metres from the moorings. Facilities are for the use of all customers.

Car parking is available nearby and is for public use so spaces for moorers are not guaranteed. Refuse facilities can be found in the car parking area which is approximately 150 metres from the moorings.

The mooring is on plastic wood effect staging, fitted with mooring rings. Mooring rings may need to be shared with other boats to best manage the water space. Access onto the staging from the towpath is down one of three stepped areas. Each stepped area has a hand rail.

IMPORTANT NOTES: All customer items must be stored on boats and not on the staging or surrounding land areas.

Rings may be shared with neighbouring boats to best manage the water space.

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.
