Mooring Consultation.

Saturday 26th January 2013.
Kings Bromley Marina.

We've had a Canal and River Trust mooring consultation document Emailed to us asking for our thoughts on visitor moorings in the South East Region, not all S.E. visitor moorings are listed as this appears to be more of a trial to test new time limits. The Trust are asking for boaters comments on mooring time limits at honeypot moorings such as Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union and Thrupp on the Southern Oxford Canal.

There seems to be a desire to reduce some 14 day visitor moorings to 5 or less, I've always thought it strange to allow 14 day visitor moorings when boats can moor beyond the moorings for 14 days anyway.

Obviously we've only commented on the moorings we know and use regularly, some of the ones further south we haven't  used since 2010 so have no up to date experience.

Anyone can join the consultation at  It's a small opportunity for boaters to do something that will benefit us all ( the ones that follow the rules that is ).
