Once a village in its own right, Hillmorton is now a suburb of Rugby in Warwickshire. The mooring site is located on the North Oxford Canal and provides boaters with plenty of good cruising routes. Hawkesbury Junction - the start of the Coventry Canal - lies just under 12.5 miles to the north and the Grand Union Canal can be reached via Braunston to the south in little over 6 miles.
The site is approximately 60m and provides space for up to 3 vessels moored on the open towpath.
The moorings are just north of Hillmorton Bottom Lock.
Hillmorton village is within 1.5 miles of the site and is on the A428. The village provides a wide range of services, including shops, church and pubs.
Rugby town centre is approximately 2.5 miles to the west of the site.
The Locks development at Bridge 71 is just off Brindley Road in Hillmorton and is a mix of craft and commercial workshops and some visitor parking.
Drinking water is available within metres of the site, at the service mooring on the towpath side of the canal. Elsan disposal is available at Bridge 71, on the offside. Refuse disposal can be found in the car park of The Locks development.
Please be aware, these facilities are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.
There is no designated parking at this site and therefore moorers must make alternative arrangements.
The site can be found by accessing the towpath at the bridge and walking down passed bottom lock.
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.
There are no access restrictions
All customer items must be stored on boats and not on any of the surrounding land areas
