Footbridge upstream of George Billington Lock is a minor waterways place on the River Avon - Warwickshire (Upper Avon Navigation) between Offenham (2 miles and 2½ furlongs and 1 lock to the southwest) and Royal Shakespeare Theatre (14 miles and 2¾ furlongs and 8 locks to the east).
 
 
The nearest place in the direction of Offenham is George Billington Lock (Named after a man whose donation enabled volunteers to build the lock. He died of an incurable disease within a week of the lock's opening.); ¾ furlongs away.
 
The nearest place in the direction of Royal Shakespeare Theatre is George Billington Lock Weir Entrance (Channel leading to the Weir); ½ furlongs away.

There is no access to the towpath here.

Mooring here is good (a nice place to moor) , no information available. Space for about 12 narrowboats in all, so very roomy by River Avon standards, with another 2 good ones on the other bank above the weir for 'Fish & Anchor' customers.

Facilities: chemical toilet disposal, rubbish disposal and water point.

The place is a Visitors Mooring, a Pub and a Campsite.

There is a bridge here which takes pedestrian traffic over the canal.

All the surrounding land is well maintained partly by the friendly landowner Margaret, who whizzes round on her golf caddy car.
