Private Residential Mooring
Wenlock Basin is a private residential mooring. It was excavated by hand in 1826 to serve the growing City of London. Becoming derelict after the decline of canal carrying in the 1950's the basin was partially filled in but in 1982 it was brought back into life as a private residential mooring by The Wenlock Basin Houseboat Company.
Each residential mooring has separately metered shore power, water and a telephone access point. There is secure cycle storage and low level lighting from dusk until midnight. In addition there are refuse collection, recycling and a portable toilet disposal point. Residents are the only keyholders for the private, gated access on the South Eastern side of Wharf Road bridge.
Two communal barbeque areas at either end of the mooring together with a number of benches and tables around the walkway provide space for outdoor living when the weather permits. Our resident moorings manager lives on site.
