Good moorings as shown in the picture. ALthough some 'drunks' inhabit the gardens they are quite friendly. Only a short walk to the town.\\Passage through the lock can be very tricky after heavy rain.\\These moorings are much safer than the moorings in the park below the lock which can be quite dangerous at weekends.
