We are pleased to advise that the Pump Out Facility at Purton is open.

It has relocated to between Purton Upper Bridge and Purton Lower Bridge on the offside by the bridge hut.


Please take notice that the pump out facility at Purton will be closed until further notice.

This is due to a severe failure with the drainage system.

The next pump out facility is a 3rd party pump out and is located at the Black Shed, Slimbridge.

There is also a 3rd party facility at Saul Marina

The nearest CRT facility is at Saul Visitor Centre.

We would like to apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
