ashby canal

The Ashby Canal runs from Marton Junction (Bridge 15 on the Coventry Canal) to just north of Snarestone, where the current navigation ends (Bridge 61). The canal is generally considered one of the most picturesque of the UK canals, and with 21 miles of lock free cruising, it is certainly one of the most popular. It is also a canal full of historic interest, with the Battle of Bosworth site and visitor centre, the spring where Richard III had his last drink before being defeated by Henry Tudor, and the spot where Henry Tudor was allegedly first crowned Henry VII. Our canal guide gives details of all amenities close to the canal, and directs you to places of interest.

MOORING

Some delightful CRT moorings at Fradley Junction, but be aware that moorings outside the Swan are owned by Kingfisher Cafe. You get 2 hours free, but anything over, you will be charged £5 (you are being watched). Overnight mooring 5pm until next morning is by owner's consent only, and you cannot be there any earlier unless you go away and come back again...) Our advice is to stick to CRT moorings!
