Boaters Facilities

There aren’t any on the Rushall.  The nearest are at Longwood Junction and Cuckoo Wharf or Ocker Hill.

  1. The canal between locks 3 and 2 was very shallow (September 2015) and we could not moor between them at all. NB Large Marge

    • Sorry about the delay in replying. Yes, this pound is shallow at the edges – it looks as if it should be good for mooring on, but isn’t. The best moorings in this area are at Longwood Junction, before you start the flight.

  2. Longwood Junction affords very good mooring with brick/tarmac towpath. (I have moored once between the locks but parts are indeed difficult to moor up to.)

  3. The mention of Cuckoo wharf above seems inappropriate. Should it not refer to the excellent facilities at Perry Barr top lock instead?

      I’m happy that we should “talk up” the facilities at Perry Bar – however they are already in. https://bcnsociety.com/moorings/tame/
      Where I disagree with you is that they are not on the Rushall – for which the facilities are as described, but on the Tame Valley.
      If you have photos – or further description, I would be delighted to use them – probably best you contact me off line.
      Regards Charley
