TOPIC: Looking for mooring on the Thames

Looking for mooring on the Thames 20 Nov 2015 19:43 #68685

Hello Margaretha,

I would suggest that you book a space in Thames and Kennet marina so that you know you have a safe haven for your barge (residential not official but tolerated). It is a little soulless but they do have barge size moorings. You will then have a chance to look around from a position of strength! Moorings don't vary much along the non-tidal Thames - expensive.

The Kennet may give better options but remember that the maximum air-draft is only 2.41m at summer levels at Reading Town 'High' bridge.

You might want to post your question on the GBI or barge forum to give it wider publicity.

Good luck - exciting times ahead!

You don't need a barge to join - a dream of boating in Europe will do'. See www.barges.org

Hi, we are about to purchase a sailing tjalk to live on. It is 20 metres build in 1904 and beautiful! It is at the moment still in Holland but we are hoping to sail/moter it over early next year and are looking for a mooring on the Thames between Maidenhead and Newbury. Can anyone advice or surgest please?
