Hello all, we have just brought our first boat which will be ready for collection in about 2 weeks.  Would like to find reasonably cost mooring as close to Buxton as possible.  It is a Sealine 22 (21.5!)  Would prefer somewhere quieter if possible, but keeping the cost down is our priority at the moment!  Any offers/recommendations most gratefully received.  To say we are super excited would be the understatement of the century! Also needs to be somewhere where little children and dogs are welcome and somewhere to park when we head off.  Thanks in advance everyone. Smile

Hi

Welcome to the Forum by the way.

I Can highly recommend Swancraft's moorings in Brundall on the Southern Broads. All facilities fuel (diesel), water, electric and pump out by the boat. Good parking and toilets on site plus Paul looks after the boat when Owners are not there. Cost are £43.00/foot. Call Paul on 01603-712362 07909180427 and have a word with him.

The terms reasonable and moorings are rarely heard together LOL.

You mentioned Buxton is that in the Peak District??? As the Forum is about the Norfolk Broads by the way.

John.

Kind regards, John(Captain

Buxton is a stop on the Bure River Railway.  It is a village north of Coltishall, so I imagine he is looking for a mooring near Coltishall.

A bad day on the water is better than a good day in the office.

Hi Pixie and welcome from me too. For a reasonably priced mooring on the northern rivers, you could do a lot worse than to look at Broadsedge at Stalham. Give them a call on 01692 582881 or 07584 341446.

I'm guessing you'll be coming via the A47, so the suggestion of Brundall will actually give you a slightly shorter driving distance. I'm also guessing your S22 is petrol engined. Brundall is the only place on the Broads where petrol is available at the riverside, so convenient for that too.

"so I imagine he is looking for a mooring near Coltishall"

Looking at Pixiie's other post, I'm guessing it's the other Buxton (Derbyshire) as that's where they live.

I'm not sure an S22 would fit under Wroxham Bridge either.

Buxton is on the River Bure, Famous for its Mill. Makes a very nice canoe trip.

Having just re-read Pixie's other post, I'm now thinking Buxton near Coltishall too.  Blush

Hi all and thank you for all the welcomes, and yes we live in Buxton Norfolk  Smile  We actually live beside the Bure with a 24ft river frontage, but the Buxton/Lammas part of the Bure is only for rowing boats, presume it is too shallow for motor boats.  The canoe man goes past the bottom of our garden very frequently and the environmental agency comes and cuts the reeds once a year but that is it.  Broadsedge is full, so is Swancraft, Wayford Bridge Company and Sutton Staith.  Dilham has some space, and it sounds absolutely lovely and perfect, but if I can find somewhere cheaper it would be helpful, but Dilham is looking good at the moment and the chap I spoke too sounded really lovely which is always good.  Hoping to go at the weekend to have a look.  I just know if I look I will fall in love with it.  Thank you for all the advice so far, so pleased I have found this forum.  Husband has been instructed to sign up too  Playful Wink  so I'm sure he will pop by and introduce himself.  Also sorted a life jacket today for our little dog so feeling it's been productive x

We have a diesel engine.  It was swapped some years ago from a sea engine to a Perkins 4108 diesel engine, located under the cockpit floor and has a Mercruiser sterndrive.  I'll see if I can figure out how to post a photo x
