Maesbury Wharf L1 Leisure

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 4 vessels moored to the off-side bank.

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.
