Bittell L1

Bittel is situated in Worcestershire between Barnt Green to the south and the Birmmingham district of Longbridge to the north. The location on the Worcester & Birmingham Canal provides boaters with a great base from which to explore the Heart of England.

The nearby Bittell Reservoirs, built to keep the Worcestershire & Birmingham Canal in water, now provide a haven for wildlife, as well as sailing, fishing and windsurfing.

The site is 258 metres long and provides space for up to 13 vessels, some with an electrical hook up and others without.
