  1. Ocker Hill – water points. It is advisable to use the visitor mooring (just inside the arm on the left) unless you have a hose at least 60′.
    Ocker Hill – mooring. If you moor in the arm on the unmarked visitor mooring then you need a resident to let you out. I have moored on what appears to be a maintenance mooring opposite the visitor mooring. This enables access to the facilities building without bothering residents to let you out.

    • Walsall Town Basin – moorings. These are excellent but be mindful that Friday and Saturday will be noisy with nightclubs open until very late. Shops are only 2 minutes away, as are trains and buses. There is a very decent launderette on the Wolverhampton Road.
      Surprisingly there is no water point in the Basin. The local bar may permit use of their own water point if approached.
