New water point at Leamington Spa

Published: Wednesday, 11 October 2017

There is a new water point on the Grand Union Canal in Leamington Spa. It’s a few yards east of Bridge 40 (Clemens Street) but set back from the towpath edge so not that visible.

It has been provided by the developers of the adjacent large student accommodation blocks as part of their contribution to the community agreed during the planning process. Existing mooring rings are available at the location—but if going east you need to pull up smartly after Bridge 40 as there is only just enough space to moor a full length boat near the water point.
