Claverton Mooring

Narrow Escape is moored at Claverton Wharf, right next to the historic pumping station and overlooks the picturesque weir on the River Avon.

The mooring is accessible for unloading vehicles at Ferry Lane with long term designated parking for guests located a few minutes’ walk away at bridge 181 (Cow Bridge). Sometimes alternative embarking locations, where there is alternative parking may be offered. Our staff can drive you back to the boat from the car park if you don’t fancy the 10 minute stroll along the tow path.

Wild swimming at Claverton weir, one of Bath’s summer cooling-off spots. The pumping station was built by John Rennie between 1809 and 1813 to overcome water supply problems on the canal.


Directions to Claverton Mooring

Claverton is five miles south of Bath, directly off the A36 (Warminster Road)

Coming from Bath, head out of the City following signs towards Frome and Warminster. Claverton is the next group of buildings once you have left Bathampton on the Warminster Road (about 2 miles after Bathampton). Just after entering the small village and the signpost marking the start of Claverton, Ferry Lane is 300 yards on the left-hand side straight after the lay-by bus stop.

Arriving from the south, through Limpley Stoke and crossing the viaduct at Moncton Combe, drive past the Murco / Spar petrol station on you right-hand side (the nearest convenience store). One mile later, as you enter the small village of Claverton, Ferry lane is on the right hand side, (100 yards past the turning on the left for The American Museum).

Head down Ferry Lane where you can park temporarily just over the canal bridge.  Narrow Escape is the 9th boat alog.

Ferry Lane, Claverton, Bath, BA2 7BH



Once you have unloaded, turn right at the top of Ferry lane and head back towards Bath. 200 yards along and directly after the lay-by on the right hand side, you will see a gate, with the sign ‘BATHAMPTON A.A. PRIVATE FISHING’. You can park your car here for the duration of your stay. The canal is just down the track at the bottom of the field.

From here you can either walk to the boat along the tow path or we will drive you back and start the hand over procedure.
