Norbury Towpath L1

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.
