Sherborne Wharf canal warehouse (now flats)

Moorings have electrical hookup and water, and there is rubbish disposal for moorers.  Commercially rented by Sherborne Wharf, in addition to running the dry dock at Hockley Port 

There are no publicly available facilities, other than those attached to the moorings.

The flats at the left side of the were converted from a canal warehouse built for Fellows Morton and Clayton in the 1930s –  quite possibly the last canal warehouse built.

There is a large Morrison’s on the Hagley Road, just beyond Fiveways, and a small Sainsbury’s on Broad Street.

Return to Central Birmingham moorings or BCN Old Main Line moorings.
