Additional Information

The nearest water points are on the towpath at Fenny Compton (400m) and are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.

General boater facilities are available at Fenny Marina, approximately half a mile west.

Car parking is not available at this site so moorers must make alternate 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.
