  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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:
  7. Hi, I'm looking into moving onto a widebeam in the Surrey (Surbiton) area. I've heard residential moorings are hard to come by, so I'm wondering if it's possible to find a local farmer or land owner, with land backing onto the Thames and renting a mooring off them? What license would I need? Would the land owner need planning permission? What else would I and the land owner need to stay legal? Thanks Andy
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I'm trying to get a grasp of what the rules are for CRT home moorings. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has answers to my questions. My plan was to get a home mooring from the CRT and regularly travel to nearby cities (say 20 to 40 miles away) staying away for maybe a couple of weeks or more (maybe) before coming back and 'recuperating' on the home mooring for several days or a week in-between my adventures. I read a CRT document "cruising-while-away-from-a-home-mooring.pdf" and it states, "every time you return to your home mooring (provided that this is not merely for a nominal period in an attempt to circumvent the rules), your cruise ends and “the clock” is effectively re-set. " "However, shuffling between two locations close together, neither of which is your home mooring, for an extended period is not permitted as that shuffling is not "cruising." My questions are, Is regularly sleeping overnights on a home (leisure) mooring allowed? If I am using my boat as a live-aboard, would my plans be classed as 'circumventing the rules'? Would it be better to just forget about having a home mooring and become a continuous cruiser instead?
  11. Hello, So I know that this is a much discussed topic, and sometimes a hopeless case, but I thought I'd ask for advice anyway. My boyfriend and I live aboard in Cropredy at the moment on a 9 month short term permit from CRT. We work in schools, so were hoping to cruise over the summer and then get another 9 month permit in September. However, there do not seem to be any more short term permits being offered at Cropredy or nearby. Now I know there are off-side moorings up and down from where we are at the moment, but you seem to have to know someone (and I'm not quite sure who) to get in with a chance of them (which is perfectly fair, as I'm sure I'd do it the same way if I was renting out my land). So I was hoping some of you lovely people might have some suggestions as to who we need to get to know, how we could get to know them, or how we could prove that we are trustworthy, responsible and a delight to rent to! Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Alison
  12. I first shared this idea with Daniel (site owner) and he suggested that I post it here to see what other people think, so please respond with short or lengthy comments or additional related ideas: My boat is currently stuck on the Leeds & Liverpool (near Wigan) due to a stoppage at Rishton which may take over 8 weeks to be sorted by CRT. This experience has made me wonder whether there is any way to contact other boaters who may be in a similar position and who might have a mooring on the Wigan side of the stoppage that they could swap with my permanent mooring near Skipton in North Yorkshire? I have tried to find a forum set up to deal with this issue but have failed so far. I suggested that CRT might help set something up but received a message from Sally Ash (Head of Boating at CRT) as follows: Using the internet to broker moorings swaps is an attractive idea which we have pondered in the past periodically. The conclusion today is that this would be a venture much better developed independently of the Trust and which didn’t limit itself to occasions when boats are stranded because of bad weather or emergency navigation restrictions. E.g. I have friends with a nice end of garden mooring on the GU in Hertfordshire and they’d love to spend a summer exploring northern waterways. For the Trust to investing its resources in such a venture would be hard to reconcile with our charitable objects which are about providing public, rather than personal benefit from navigation. Nevertheless, it’d be something that we’d be happy to help promote if a suitable scheme was developed. Having just found (and joined) the Canalworld website it seems to me that this would be an ideal place to host such a helpful new service and so I'm making this suggestion to you in the hope that you might be interested in taking it up. If so, I would suggest establishing a new section of the website where people with suitable and available moorings can advertise their availability to either boaters who are either a ) needing help in an unexpected situation (such as mine), or b ) who would like to stay awhile in a different part of the country. On reflection, the idea of "doing a swap" is rather restrictive and may not meet as many people's needs. Mooring "adverts" could perhaps be structured in a way to include some or all of the following: Canal Address Dates available Security Facilities available (electicity, water, rubbish disposal, toilets, toilet cassette emptying, parking, public transport links, distance from shops etc.) Fee payable (either to individual boater, or "site landlord") Comments on using the individual mooring (e.g. I'd put: friendly live-aboard neighbours, lovely farm setting etc) Contact details I hope that this idea will be greeted positively by other Canalworld Forum members, and at this moment my permanent mooring is currently vacant and I'd be happy to use it as a trial for this new service.
  13. I am currently a liveaboard CCer (have a 32ft GRP narrowbeam cruiser) but will start a PhD in Bath in September, and I think really the only feasible option for my relocation to Bath will be to have a permanent mooring (or the boat will have to go -my funding won't stretch to mooring my boat somewhere else and renting in Bath...although I have had it suggested by more than one person that I should just crane the boat into the university's ornamental lake ) Not expecting to find an officially residential mooring, as long as I can get away with being a 'stays a lot' type (I will in all likelihood be going between boat and places elsewhere a fair bit of the time anyway) but need to be relatively close to Bath as I will be relying on bus or train to get into uni. I'm aware of a few marinas round there, but I've not had a mooring before, so I really don't have much of an idea of how hard it will be to actually secure one (things I read about the K&A make it sound like they're in short supply) and when I should start looking etc (in an ideal world, I would love one sorted for end of August as I am about to embark on a pre-PhD grand canal journey that I am looking forward to, but PhD comes above everything, so if it was a case of needing to start looking ASAP and snap one up as soon as it came along, I will do that). I would really appreciate any advice anyone could give regarding mooring availability in that part of the world and the best approach to take to finding one.
  14. 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.
  15. Hi all, we have just bought our first 16ft river cruiser and looking for somewhere to moor it/ store it in oxfordshire, we are in woodstock. Please can someone help us or point us in the right direction!! THANKS
  16. Hi travelling from Wakefield next week hope to do about 7 hours to get me into Leeds, where is best place to stay,? are the visitor moorings the best place,? if I only do 5 hours [ more likely ] any tips where best place to moor
  17. 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?
  18. Hi folks, Could anyone please offer recommendations for solicitors who are savvy with the purchase/sale of freehold land with mooring/riparian rights attached to it? To be clear, we are not looking here for advice on the ins and outs of such 'rights' or use of the land, we have already exchanged ample spoken and written communications with respective entities including the Environment Agency, the current land owner and the Council/planning department. So I would just kindly ask that people keep responses in the area of names for solicitors. I only ask as I know that boating forum'ers are so often keen to offer their ample experience and knowledge in, usually, the most helpful of ways but we are already plenty benefited by the transfer of such wisdom and in this case just needing some straightforward recommendations of quality legal representation to do the bits we would otherwise find a headache *Note*, we are not, in fact, looking to live on the land or to moor as 'residential' Many thanks in advance, Chris. Ps. If anyone does want to ask questions about what we're up to please feel free to PM me.
  19. Will be doing a post soon about the best places in Britain to moor, whether it be Permanent or Temporary, so was just wondering where the best place you've ever moored was, and why it was so good?
  20. I am possibly starting a new job in the new year, unfortunately it will be a 2 1/2 hr commute each way on a good run each day. I am considering moving my boat (currently on the K&A) up to a more local location and spending a few nights per week on the boat to cut down my travelling time. Does anyone know of suitable mooring locations close to J3 of the M5 preferably with electric hookup and parking I will also be looking for a suitable crainage point and contractor in the same locality that can handle a 42footer Any helpful info will be very much appreciated
  21. 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 [email protected] and wondered what everyone else's experience was? Is it usual to have trouble gaining info about this sort of thing? Have seen [email protected] 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
  22. 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
  23. I'm making plans and need the forum's expertise, please. Is it possible to moor at or in the vicinity of Bugsworth for longer than 48hrs, would it be wise to leave a boat unattended there, and is it practical to get a train from close by? Cheers, MP.
  24. These mooring vacancy details have just dropped in my inbox. Woodlesford is a nice spot, easy access to the shops and pubs along with a rail station a 10 minute walk away. There is rubbish collection and water nearby but there is no elsan. May be of interest to somebody on here.
  25. Hello, I'm looking at buying a new boat unfortunately it has a cassette toilet which I don't want. I would like a Pump toilet to holding tank how much would it cost to have it fitted install + labor (I don't trust myself to do it!). The boat is a viking 26 cc, very similar to a narrow boat. Also do any of you know cheap mooring on the River Wey for a viking 26 cc. James
