We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Directly managed moorings

We provide around 3,600 long term moorings spread across 300 sites in England and Wales.

This represents approximately 11% of moorings available across our network. Long term moorings that are directly managed by us are allocated online at www.watersidemooring.com.

Our mooring sites comprise of linear configurations on the lines of the canal/river which can either be next to the towpath or on the opposite bank, or they can be located ‘off-line’ which includes those located in small basins, lay-bys and marinas. The numbers of moored boats at sites varies greatly from 1 to over 50. 

Long term moorings directly managed by the Trust are usually assigned for periods for 12 months or more, with the ability for customers to renew at the end of the term. They are predominately offered for private leisure customers. 

We provide moorings for both leisure and residential use (i.e. those with formal planning consent, or long established residential use).
