  1. We will shortly be going into Birmingham once the floating market bods have vacated the VM's. We know all the Brum mooring options pretty well as we've been many times before. But we also plan to go down the arm to Titford Pools which will be new territory for us. I only draw 2ft so are the pools navigable since they did the dredging? Can you moor in the pools? Are they quiet (except for the motorway noise) regarding footfall and local yoofs? Any recommendations for the best place to moor? We then plan to moor at the BCLM afterwards. I've researched this using previous threads on here, but are there any current changes there which I should know about?
  2. We going to do the Warwickshire ring (Clockwise) and looking for advice please (A bit more specific than previous threads, I have looked....honest). We're not going into central Birmingham so will be heading up the Grand Union and turning right at Bordesley Junction up the Birmingham and Warwick before joining the B&F. We're planning to stop for lunch at Catherine-de-Barnes, hopefully to meet some friends at The Boat! However I'd quite like to push on a little bit in the afternoon, for an hour or so, to help shorten the next day ideally so we can get well past Star City (although I'm not adverse to stoping there, if space allows). I seem to remember an awful lot of the bank heading up to Boardsley Junction, where you may wish to moor, is solid concrete / paving and is very difficult to moor too. Is my memory right? If there are any reasonable / recommended mooring spots on this stretch your advice would be most welcome. We've plenty of time so don't really wish, or need, to cruise lots of hrs a day. As always many thanks in advance for all useful replies 😁
  3. Hi Everyone and pleased to meet you all, I am new to the forum and am looking at purchasing my first boat. Now, please bare with me as a complete newbie and beginner but I am asking this question because I was always told 'if you don't ask, you don't know' and I am struggling to find the answer online or at least a CLEAR answer. I hope you can all help. I am always ready to listen and ready to learn. I have spent the last 15 years travelling non stop to every corner of the globe as part of my career and am looking at slowing down and a slight change of pace and joining the wonderful narrowboat community has been something I have been interested in for years. I have travelled all over the world and seen next to nothing of the country I live in and this seems like a perfect way to do that. I have been reading and researching as much as possible and can't quite find a clear answer to my question about what type of mooring I need and should look for. What counts as residential and leisure and what's applicable with MY specific situation. I understand the principles of both but wanted to reach out to the real experts, the people who do this all the time, you men and women of the forum. I won't be quitting my touring and musical work straight away, just slowing down. For me my average work cycle would be: Away working for 4 weeks, home for 2 weeks OR Away working for about 8 weeks, home for 4 weeks. I am trying to work out what sort of mooring you all would suggest for someone in my situation where I would be away from the boat for one or two months but MAY be home for a month or so. I guess the real parts of the question of mooring are about boat security and safety when away for potentially two months BUT ALSO if I am home and on the boat for 4 or 5 weeks in one go then does that mean I have to try to find a residential mooring? Again, I apologise for the questions and LONG message but I am hoping to join all of you in this community and see you all as experts. Thank you Danny
  4. Can anyone recommend where to moor at Sonning and Henley? We plan to moor for one night (<24 hours) at Sonning, but a moor for a couple of nights at Henley. We are happy to pay for good mooring especially if there is a power hook up. Is there normally a good choice of moorings? We have a 60' narrow boat. Thanks, Alan
  5. Hi fellow boaters, New to living aboard and my first scare last night. I was moored in Berkhamsted and in the middle of the night I awoke to find my boat was sitting heavily angled in the water. I worked out that I must have been sitting on silt whilst the water levels dropped. It transpired the lock downstream had a panel left open, hence why the water levels dropped in the pound I was moored in. I was wondering, is there any tips for mooring in silted up areas? Do people probe the water before deciding to moor in certain areas or is there a way to moor so you're sitting further away from the canal edge?? Cheers! George x P.S I later passed a boat which had been flooded due to the drop in water as well! ?
  6. Hi Are there ground mooring rings on the towpath at Sale Bridge on the Bridgewater Canal. Anyone moored there over night? Anyone had any issues? Thanks
  7. Hi, I am looking for some advice as a lot of the research I have been doing it still slightly confusing. We are buying a narrow boat as a weekend retreat, holiday home if you like, we will still be living in our “brick and mortar home” As we are not going to live in the boat full time and it’s for leisure only, will we be able to moore up anywhere and leave it and then move it within 14 days or will we have to buy / rent a permanent mooring and this has to be the place we leave it when it’s not being used during the week? Do we get any kind of discount as it would only be an ongoing leisure mooring and not a mooring where we would live full time? Thank you
  8. Hi there I will be moving my boat up to Birmingham for a new job. We live aboard and are wondering where the best moorings are? My partner will be working in the city centre and I'll be in solihull. We have 1 car Thanks
  9. Hi, I've spent some time in Northampton Marina and spoke to someone who mentioned that some boaters have been known to use concrete blocks (buckets filled with set concrete) to moor within the River Nene. As the river is owned by the EA and most of the bank sides are private, this sounds like a ingenious idea to allow mooring anywhere along a stretch of river. Granted, you'd need to consider having a canoe/dingy or an LONG plank of wood in order to get to the bank. I'm not planning on doing this, but more curious as to whether anyone has experienced this? Would the EA still require you to move on after a certain period of time? I'm not that clued up on what the EA rules are if i'm being totally honest. Cheers, George
  10. Well I've gone and done it and yes I know for many it's the wrong option but I've put the deposit down on a lined sailaway with additions that comes within my budget and now I've got to wait 12 months ... but in the meantime my thoughts or rather concerns now turn to where to moor the boat long term whilst I start on the fit out. I'd like to be near Atherstone on the Coventry I'm seeking your advice - given that I'm looking at the beginning of 2020 then is it too soon to start knocking on marina, wharf and boat yard doors ? Is it usual for such places to take a holding deposit or reserve a mooring or is it pay in full even if the boat won't be there? I also need a mooring that will tolerate me working on the boat and I've assumed that this would be acceptable but having walked past many moorings I've rarely seen any activity, more like cemeteries than marinas - is this frowned upon ? Any suggestions for suitable long term moorings in and around the Atherstone area ? Thanks in anticipation Martin
  11. Just trying to get an idea of what the typical fee for a farmers field mooring with no facilities is ? Looking at an offside mooring no facilities as such other than a water tap ! And trying work out what a reasonable fee would be we're talking north here on the L&L not inflated prices southern folk pay ? Thanks
  12. Inland Mooringshttps://inlandmoorings.com My name is Martin editor of a brand new website called Inland Moorings. Inland Moorings will be a website that over time (and hopefully with help from you) aims to collect a list of online and offline moorings plus associated businesses from all around the UK Canal & Rivers, categorising them and to give as much information on these moorings and businesses as possible.This will give users of the waterways a reference and be more informed as to the best (and worst) spots to visit, or avoid and know what to expect and required before taking the journey. This is the intention anyway. If you take a look https://inlandmoorings.com you will notice the site is a little bare, as the site only opened this August 2018. I am hoping to tap into your vast knowledge and experience of the UK waterways and for anyone to upload any popular (and not so popular) mooring sites from around the waterways that they feel needs a special mention. I really hope you use and enjoy the site. Also looking for feedback ref the site what do you think generally. I will be here if you have any questions. Many thx for your time (Post was OK'ed by RichM) Share your views and discuss in the topic linked below:
  13. Hi all, I’m new here and would really appreciate some help... I have a residential mooring, which I’m considering selling. I have no idea where to start with valuations. The local estate agents haven’t dealt with moorings before didn’t give me much confidence. I can’t find comparable plots on line for comparison. Does anyone know a specialist in this type of valuation? thanks in advance. Brizz
  14. OK, so we've had the boat for the best part of eight years and these came with it - in amongst the mooring pins, nappy hooks, ropes etc. I've always known that they were to moor with so on a recent trip I used one to moor to Armco. Fell out straight away. Don't laugh - what the Hell are they and how do you use them??? Diagrams/pictures welcome.... Doh!
  15. In planning my cruise on the Thames in August this year I asked BWML about a visitor mooring in Limehouse Basin. Guess how much per day . . . . . I was truly shocked . . . . now I know why BWML want to install more pontoons in Limehouse. If you do feel strongly about this matter, you must go online and register your objection. How much per day? £73.95 so the invoice was for £369.75 for 5 days mooring. OCM said no in certain words I can not use on this forum.
  16. I expect to get shot down, so sorry for asking, but having gone past on the train a few times and seen boats that appear to be moored in the occasional longer spaces between locks on this flight, I'd ask, is this permissable? ie acceptable, within CRT rules and an okay thing to do? If not, I won't. Thanks in anticipation. Jon
  17. Hi, We have just joined as recommended by another boater on the cut. We are hoping someone can help or advice us as we are on our way to Hounslow where I have a 3 month work contract and need a mooring within commuting distance by car to Hounslow. We are currently on route and should arrive in Hounslow about the 16th December. Many thanks Prakash
  18. Hello, Totally new to boating and looking for a permanent (non residential) mooring on the Bridgewater Canal (preferably close to Manchester) but can't find any information. Have been unable to get a response from bridgewatercanal@peel.co.uk and wondered what everyone else's experience was? Is it usual to have trouble gaining info about this sort of thing? Have seen mwebb@peel.co.uk suggested many times, but he has now retired. Finding it very frustrating. Thanks in advance for any help or advice, it would be very gratefully received! Amelia
  19. Hi everyone, I have been lurking around the forum for a while now and I hope you all don't mind but we are in need of a bit of advice! Me and my partner are looking for our first boat and we plan to live aboard in London. I've read around about how difficult it is to find a residential mooring in London and that generally if you want one you buy a boat on the mooring already (we would prefer a residential mooring as I don't think we could CC and work in our jobs without quite a bit of stress). The dilemma we're having is that we've found a boat we like the look of in London but the family is concerned that it isn't good value for money as its a bit older etc (which really they're right but I assume thats the deal with getting a boat on a mooring in London). Would you say that this boat is worth it to buy or would it be worth hunting around London for a mooring and buying a boat without one? http://london.apolloduck.co.uk/feature.phtml?id=473888 We would like to be living on a boat in the next year (although sooner if possible!), so my concern is that waiting for a mooring in London could take several years! By London we mean anywhere as far out as Hampton Court ish area - beyond that the train gets so expensive to travel in plus the long journey just makes it not worth it for us. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you don't mind me asking! I hope to be joining you all on the water very soon
  20. Hello all, I'm new to the world of boating, but I've fallen for the live-aboard concept, and it looks like it will fit perfectly to my lifestyle. I spend most of my time working away from home (I'm only really home a couple of nights a week at most.) It seems mad to pay so much for rent when all I need is a peaceful place to sleep and relax. I've done a fair amount of research, and I've put together a budget of roughly £15,000 to spend on a boat (it seems like there are a few in reasonable condition at that price, I plan on renovating much of it myself.) My question is mainly about the mooring type I should look for - I figure I need to find somewhere to put it before I buy! Would my situation require a dedicated residential mooring or would I get away with a recreational one? I have a dedicated office-space elsewhere that I can use as a permanent address and work/stay whenever I need so I don't need a postal address. I plan on using solar power as I won't need much power, and I can use mobile internet. All I really need is a dedicated parking spot, a water supply and the freedom to stay for a few nights a week. I'm hoping to avoid paying council tax as well. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my situation. Many thanks, Louis
  21. Does anyone know where you can moor safely on the River Thames for 7 days near Staines? All the information I can find suggests that you can not stay for longer than 24 hours.
  22. Does anybody on here have any experience of this marina? It's at Rufford on the Rufford arm of the Leeds and Liverpool. It seems like a really lovely place but it would be nice to hear from anybody that has stayed there, or is there now. Thanks.
  23. My partner and I are in the process of buying our first live aboard Narrowboat. We're looking for a residential mooring in the Hertfordshire area however we're having real trouble finding one, all the marinas we've contacted are full and have basically told us there's no point going on the waiting lists as they're so long. Does anyone know of any residential moorings or have any tips on how to go about getting one? Many thanks for any advice ?
  24. Early stages of now looking for a mooring I'm buying a widebeam so clearway need marinas as well as canals that will fit. looking for marinas that have residential mooring ideally something rural. Just looking for marina names as there doesn't seem to be a simple way of finding a list of marinas that offer residential as well as suitable for widebeam If people live on the marinas even better Thanks
  25. Ok so we have put the deposit down on a boat, subject to survey which is in hand, and expect to 'own' it by the end of the month. I have a number of questions so I will keep them separate and appreciate any advice/comments. Firstly moorings: we won't be residential nor constant cruisers but we do expect to use the boat throughout the year anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks (or more) at a time. I realise I need a mooring but as I don't need it all year is there anyway round this? i.e. Other than somewhere to keep the car I am not sure about paying for 12mths when I may realsitically only use it for 4 (not necessarily consecutive) I trust I have explained that ok?
