Red Bull Basin L1 Leisure

Red Bull Moorings are situated in Kidsgrove towards the southern end of the picturesque Macclesfield Canal in Staffordshire. The location is popular with boaters as it forms part of the Cheshire Ring - a circular canal route stretching for 97 miles across six separate canals.

The secure mooring site is approximately 230m long and provides space for up to 12 boats moored to the off-side bank.

Additional Information

Electricity and water points on site are shared between two boats. Electricity is supplied via Smart Meters where payment is made using an on-line portal.

The nearest facilities, including Elsan disposal, pump out, laundry facilities, showers and toilets, are at Red Bull Wharf, via Hardingswood Junction with the Trent and Mersey Canal and through Locks 41, 42 and 43.

A boat repair yard is also available at Red Bull Wharf.

Car parking is not available at this site so moorers must make their own arrangements.

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.
