Ocker Hill is a premium residential mooring area situated on a branch off the Birmingham Canal Navigations (Walsall Canal) in the West Midlands.
The site provides easy access into the City of Birmingham, either by car, public transport or by boat. A good selection of shops and other local amenities can also be found nearby.
The mooring site is 348m long and accommodates 18 residential boats.
The moorings are approximately one and a half miles from the A41 Black Country New Road. From the Navigation Roundabout on the A41 take the A461 Great Western Way towards Great Bridge. Within a short distance a further traffic island with two prominent lion statues is reached. Take the third exit into New Road which eventually becomes Toll End Road. Turn right from Toll End Road into Bayleys Lane until the canal bridge is reached. The site is accessed via steps down the embankment.
