Withybed Moorings

of Alvechurch

Welcome to Withybed Moorings

Withybedmoorings Site Plan

A new recreational mooring facility for narrowboats in the heart of the Midlands inland waterways, set in 13 hectares of beautiful North Worcestershire countryside.

This new development, although small in capacity by comparison, serving only 54 boats, will attract those who wish to remove themselves from the large open aspect of many marinas and the associated developments required to subsidise the “business”. 

Here we have a simple high quality off line mooring area located on the Birmingham Worcester canal adjacent to the hamlet of Withybed Green, Alvechurch.

The development will lie behind a secure gated site which is offside from the towpath. Conveniently placed just north of the Tardebigge flight to access adjoining waterways and the cruising rings of The Avon, Birmingham, Stourport, Warwickshire and the restored Droitwich Canals. 

You can be kept up-to-date with the Withybed Moorings on the blog page, Facebook or if you would like more detailed information, then please contact us.
