About our Canal Moorings
Located at the foot of Caen Hill Locks, near Devizes. Our marina is a 30 minutes drive from Junction 17 of the M4, a couple of hours from Southampton, three hours from London and 9 hours by boat to Bath.
The Foxhangers moorings are set in amongst farmland with access off the A361 via a long farm track. The moorings are highly sought after because they are very secure and peaceful with parking spaces close by the boats. Vehicular access is off the A361 via 3 minute journey down a stone road to the site.
Devizes town centre and all the usual shops of a small market town are just a few minutes drive away and larger supermarkets can be found in Melksham and Trowbridge. For more information on what’s nearby visit our interactive map.
The small marina basin has 22 berths and there is only a limited amount of Canalside mooring. All berths have water and electric.
The Privilege Canalside Moorings are deemed most suitable for wide beam vessels, the grassed bank edge although piled has a solid wood rubbing board that your boat will rest against. The price is in line with the current market rate for wide-beam moorings, however, any type of canal boat is welcome on these. Regrettably, our marina basin is not appropriate for boats wider than 7 foot.
