Hillmorton Locks L1

Once a village in its own right, Hillmorton is now a suburb of Rugby in Warwickshire. The mooring site is located on the North Oxford Canal and provides boaters with plenty of good cruising routes. Hawkesbury Junction - the start of the Coventry Canal - lies just under 12.5 miles to the north and the Grand Union Canal can be reached via Braunston to the south in little over 6 miles.

The site is approximately 80m and provides space for up to 5 vessels moored to the off-side bank.

Nearest Road

The moorings are just north of Hillmorton Middle Locks, 4 and 5, and immediately south of Bridge 71, Burtons Bridge.

Hillmorton village is within 1.5 miles of the site and is on the A428. The village provides a wide range of services, including shops, church and pubs.

Rugby town centre is approximately 2.5 miles to the west of the site.

The Locks development at Bridge 71 is just off Brindley Road in Hillmorton and is a mix of craft and commercial workshops and some visitor parking.
