Situated on the outskirts of Coventry, Ansty is a small rural village on the Oxford Canal. The site has good access to from the M6 and M69 motorways and provides boaters with an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful countryside of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire.
The mooring site is in the centre of Ansty village. The B4065 (Main Road) leads from junction 2 of the M6 motorway, approximately 1 mile south west of the village. The moorings can be accessed from Grove Road, off Main Road. The site runs parallel to Grove Road, at the top of the embankment.
There are some local services available in Ansty, including a pub and a hotel. At the junction of the M6 there is a retail park, with a large supermarket. Coventry city centre is less than 5 miles away from the site.
There is a water point in the middle of the site, just north of Bridge 14, for the use of all boaters. The site is split into two sections. The nearest Elsan disposal, refuse disposal and toilet facilities are approximately three miles north of the site, at Sutton Stop, Hawkesbury Junction.
All facilities mentioned are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.
There is no designated car park at this site so moorers must make alternative 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.
All customer items must be stored on boats and not on any of the surrounding land areas
The mooring site has no access restrictions and can be viewed at any time.
