Located just 10 miles to the west of Stafford, Norbury is a small, picturesque village on the Shropshire Union Canal in Staffordshire. Norbury Junction is a popular place for boaters being in the middle of a 17 mile lock-free stretch. Deep wooded cuttings and high embankments, which characterise this canal, can be enjoyed for miles along the route.
Norbury Towpath moorings are situated amongst rural countryside. The site is approximately 200 metres long and provides space for up to 10 vessels moored to the towpath.
To reach the site when travelling south-west on the A519, cross the canal at Bridge 39, then take the first road on the left, Pinfold Lane. Turn left at the T" junction into High Meadow then take the first road on the left which leads to Norbury Wharf. Please note; this road is unmarked. However the route from Norbury is marked clearly with brown tourist signs to "Norbury Junction".
Facilities are provided to the south at Norbury Junction. This includes Elsan and a water point at the CRT Sanitary Station, which is available to all boaters. The boat yard opposite the CRT office provides diesel, coal, boat repair, chandlery and café.
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.
The moorings can easily be viewed from the public towpath.
