The Canal & River Trust offers five long term moorings at the top of the dramatic 30 lock flight in Tardebigge in Worcestershire. The rural and picturesque location is easily accessed being close to the M5 motorway and provides boaters with a good range of cruising options. The Worcs & Birmingham Canal forms part of the 'Stourport Ring' - a 74 mile circular cruise which takes in Worcestershire, the Black Country and Birmingham in the Midlands. Alternatively, Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and Worcester and within a few days' reach.
These off-side moorings are adjacent to Tardebigge Basin and CRT maintenance yard.
The site is on the B4184, approximately two miles from Bromsgrove. From junction 1 of the M42 motorway follow the A38 south onto the Bromsgrove by-pass. At the traffic island of the A448 ignore the Redditch turning and instead take the next exit onto the B4184 towards Finstall. After passing through Finstall the mooring site is on the right, just before the bridge over the canal tunnel.
Bromsgrove has a good selection of high street stores, banks and pubs.
Service facilities, including drinking water, elsan, a toilet, shower and refuse disposal, can be found adjacent to the Canal & River Trust maintenance yard in Tardebigge New Wharf. The facilities listed are provided by and under the control of the local waterway and provided for the use of all boating customers, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.
The open car park is provided by the local waterway. Moorers can use the car park on a first come first served basis, but they do not have any priority over others at this site. There is an overspill car parking area, which is located down the track between the fencing for Crafted Boats & the cottages.
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 site has open access and the moorings can be viewed at anytime.
