Greensforge L1

Greensforge Moorings are located on the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal just 8 miles west of Dudley and 16 miles from the centre of Birmingham. The rural location is a perfect base from which to explore the West Midlands, or to venture on to the Trent & Mersey Canal at Great Haywood or the River Severn at Stourbridge.

The site is approximately 225m long and provides space for up to 11 boats moored against the towpath.
