Moorings

Pontoon moorings

There are 350 finger berths catering for vessels ranging in length from 7m to 14m and substantial lateral berthing for larger vessels and visitors. All berths have access to water and electricity. The Lockmasters will be happy to help out with your lines, arrange diesel, or give advice on local sailing and the general surroundings.

The pontoon system is in excellent condition and we ensure it remains so by undertaking a rolling maintenance program. The main site building houses a large pub/restaurant, a well stocked chandlery, a sea school, and yacht broker. as well as a comprehensive toilet and shower block.

Our main administrative offices are based in the Control Tower, an award winning glass building situated at the lock entrance. We also have a further ablution block which is adjacent to the main basin.

Storage ashore

There are two large areas for storage ashore near the main block and adjacent to the marina basins. Priority in space allocation is given to our annual resident pontoon berth-holders.
