Maesbury Wharf L1

Maesbury is a small, rural village located on the Montgomery Canal. The site is the only long term mooring location on this partially restored canal which stretches from Lower Frankton, near Ellesmere in Shropshire to Newtown in Powys.

Seven miles through six locks are now navigable from the junction with the Llangollen Canal.

The leisure mooring site is approximately 70 metres long and provides space for up to 3 vessels moored to the off-side bank.
