About Waterside Mooring 

Waterside Mooring is brought to you by the Canal & River Trust, the guardian of 2,000 miles of historic waterways across England and Wales. 


We provide and directly manage the long term moorings for the Trust.  This represents about 11% of moorings available across our network.

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

Berths at a Waterside Mooring are usually let 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, although in a few locations we do provide moorings for residential use (i.e. those with formal planning consent, or long established residential use).
