Gailey Wharf Moorings are located on the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal close to Penkridge. The site provides a good base for a number of cruising options, both north to the Potteries and Peak District or south towards Birmingham.
The site is approximately 215 metres long and provides space for up to 10 boats moored against the towpath.
From junction 12 of the M6, head west on the A5 and turn left beside the distinctive Roundhouse (the old toll house). The mooring site is a short walk along the grassy towpath.
The boatyard at Gailey Wharf, opposite the site, offers boat repairs, diesel, gas, slipway, and wet dock.
A Canal & River Trust car park is available at Gailey Wharf. Car Parking
is provided by the local waterway, moorers can use it but they do not have any priority over others at this site and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Facilities block is located at the lock. All facilities are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.
Mooring rings are installed at this site but mooring pins or piling hooks may be required dependent on the spacing of rings and boat length.
There is a shop within a 10-minute walk from the site. Penkridge village, offering a good selection of shops, fast food, pubs, and a post office, is less than 3 miles away, heading north along the A449.
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.
