This isnt SW it is SE and Central.

Waterpoints are at Gayton Junction, Stowe Hill, Whilton, Buckby top, Braunston (2, one by stop house and one after Midland Chandlers), Hillmorton (2 - blow bottom lock), Central Rugby in the park on the North side before the A426 crosses- the old one has been removed just after the bridge), Newbold, Stretton stop (just after the swingbridge on left) and plenty to choose from at Sutton Stop. There is also a waterpoint just before Coventry basin.

SW covers West side of Brum down to Gloucester /Sharpness covered by guide 2.

Nicholson you need to be looking at is Grand Union,Oxford & the South East Guide 1

I know most of the waterways fairly well, and this section blinfolded.

Cheap well 2000 for a 50-60 foot ? I may be dreaming..... I just can't seem to find any on the CRT site inbetween Northampton and daventry. I guess this will be a another post ? Good web sites for mooring on the SW central canals maybe ?

There are online moorings at Gayton Junction, Furnace Lane, StoweHill, Dodford and Welton. Marinas at Gayton, Blisworth, Heyford Fields, Bugbrooke, High House, Stowe Hill, Weedon , Whilton and Welton Haven/Hythe South East of Daventry. Plenty of marinas the other side of Braunston Tunnel with more coming and planned.

 

It may be an idea to get in touch with the local moorings manager rather than look at the disfunctional moorings website, you can express interest in an area and they may know of something available or coming up soon.
