Audlem L1 Leisure

The vibrant village of Audlem lies approximately half way between Nantwich and Market Drayton on the border of Cheshire and Shropshire. The moorings are located on the picturesque Shropshire Union Canal which forms part of the Four Counties Ring - a circular route which takes in stunning canalside historic houses, pretty half-timbered market towns and an array of nearby leisure and cultural attractions. Audlem has a number of attractions including a popular annual music festival and carnival.

Situated in the heart of the village the Town Lock moorings are located between locks 11 and 12 in a flight of fifteen locks in Audlem which take the water level down from the Shropshire heights to the Cheshire Plain, some 93 feet (30 metres).

The mooring site is approximately 240m long and provides space for up to 10 vessels.

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.
