New Islington Marina
Navigational note for Manchester 18:Canal & River Trust has a number of volunteer lock keepers working on the Rochdale Canal flight of 17, between Lock 65 at Failsworth and Lock 81 at Miles Platting. Although booking is no longer required on the flight, it can be hard work and a number of boaters have requested assistance. The volunteers are happy to help when they can. Their help is given voluntarily so assistance is not guaranteed, but if you would like help call 0303 040 4040 at least 24 hours before your planned passage (longer if possible) and we will try to arrange this with the volunteers. The lock keepers have all trained with the Trust and have excellent local knowledge which can really add to your experience of the flight. Please call us if you want to look into this, the more notice the better. While assistance cannot be guaranteed the volunteers are committed to helping where they can.
Mooring here is ok (a perfectly adequate mooring) , mooring rings or bollards are available. About 150' of rings available outside the permanent moorings. Nice service block opposite, bins a little further away. Local moorers are friendly!
