Canal access fob - Where is it used?

We have this little electronic door access fob, which I believe is for facilities on a certain can and or in a certain region. 

 

However I have to my knowledge never used or needed it, certainly not in the last ten years, and now I'm unsure what is used for or if it still works!

 

Thoughts welcome.

We had one like that for the security gates at Mercia Marina (and the storage yard where we once kept our caravan).

 

Have you ever moored in a marina?

It is a common gadget. Could be for access to anything anywhere! I have one that looks identical to access a cycle store at a railway station.

 I've one to get into Frome Town Hall! I doubt Dan's would work on that though...

When we visited the Lancaster 10  years or so ago the info said a tag was required to access some facilities. When we tried to get one were told it was no longer needed.

Granted, I have had one the same for one place of work, and likewise for Lowri's flat. You can get them in all colours. But blue/green seems much more common then red/orange!

 

However, what I want to know is what this one is for! 😆

 Ahhh. Now that could be it. 

 

My gut feeling is it is for somewhere north, that I've not been to. The Lancaster fits that in a way not many places do. Also for facilities, not a Marina. 

 

At which point, it seems like it is now defunct!
