The nearest pump out, shower, toilets and washing machine facilities are at Anderton, approximately two hours cruise north. There are also private pump out facilities at Kings Lock Chandlery and Middlewich Narrowboats, approximately one mile cruise south.

Parking is not available at this site so moorers must make alternative arrangements.

Mooring rings are installed along the site but mooring pins may be needed dependant on boat length and the spacing of rings.

There is a recycling centre close to the site.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Boats wider than 7 feet will not be able to navigate the nearby Croxton Aqueduct.

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.
