TAKE CARE MOORING
Boats must be securely moored and in such a way as not to obstruct other boats in their navigation of the river.
Do not “Beach” your craft into reed beds and vegetation.
Do not tie up, when mooring, to trees growing out from the bank edge.
If a boat is moored against the bank, no mooring rope or chain must be placed across the public footpath
