Hello bermudag and welcome.

I didn't know the answer to your question so I decided to see if I could google anything.

I found an interesting new website I'd never seen before here:  

http://www.jim-shead.com/waterways/Articles.php?wpage=147

It doesn't actually state the length but shows a picture which indicates quite a lengthy mooring area, and it seems a really interesting page, too!

Hope this helps.

Hi There

Horsey Staithe is quite narrow and also tapers down even more towards the mill, so if you venture down too far it will be difficult to turn and you may have to reverse out! However there is room for a few boats. Ideally try to moor nearer to the entrance to the staithe as you will find this easier. It’s quite a popular spot, so arriving earlier is always a good idea. This picture is a view towards the entrance from Horsey Mere.

Hope you get under the bridge! Should have a reasonable chance with that style of boat.

This Google Satellite view of Horsey Dyke must have been taken in early Spring or late Autumn, becuase there's never that much space during the height of the Season !

The mooring from the right angle bend down to the mill are private berth holders, but the rest is public mooring, so there are quite a few, although as someone has already said, there's no room to turn most boats, so you would probably have to reverse out.

Early June, before the main school hols won't be as crowded as July/August.
