Situated close to Daventry in Northamptonshire, Braunston is the meeting point of the Grand Union and Oxford Canals. The small village thrived for over 150 years on the canal trade - carrying goods from the Midlands to London. Now it is a centre for leisure activities and boasts by far and away the busiest stretch of canal anywhere in the country.
There are two permanent long term mooring sites in the area - Braunston Puddlebanks is situated on the Oxford Canal. The small layby site is approximately 60m long and provides space for up to 3 vessels.
The mooring site is approx. 160 metres south of Braunston Turn, just below Bridge 95. The A45 London Road is 300 metres from the moorings. However, there is no road access to the site.
To reach the moorings by foot, take the towpath south from Braunston Turn and cross the stiles adjacent to Bridge 95.
Braunston village centre is within half a mile of the site and provides a wide range of services including 4 pubs, a well-stocked shop and post office, chandleries, tea room and church.
Daventry town centre is approximately 3 miles to the east.
The nearest water, refuse and elsan disposal facilities can be found on the offside of the canal at The Turn, 160 metres away.
Another elsan disposal is available on the towpath side of the canal, east towards Braunston Marina, approximately 500 metres from the site. Braunston Marina provides a full range of boaters facilities and services. Further rubbish disposal and drinking water facilities can be found adjacent to The Stop House, approximately 700 metres away.
Car parking is not available at this site so moorers must make alternative arrangements.
Mooring rings are installed at the site but mooring pins will also be required dependent on boat length and ring spacing.
The mooring site has no access restrictions and can be viewed at any time
