New Open Canal Map

New Open Canal Map

A free UK canal and river map has been launched for Desktop, Android and iPhone/iPad, created using users’ contributions and CRT’s Map Open Data. You can add information to the maps by typing in a place name and dragging a red marker to the exact location you want. Then add the information about the place (e.g. toilet, laundrette, recycling, chandlery, mooring with rings, electric hook up etc.) or navigation advice (e.g. CRT key required to operate bridge). Then submit your data and, after it has been processed, you will be able to view it on the map. After 18 days of its release, the map had 10,000 views and over 200 markers placed on it by 136 users.

Winter moorings

Winter moorings

CRT’s winter moorings will be available from 1st November to 16th March 2018, finishing ahead of the Easter holidays.  Boaters will be able to book the sites in increments of one month, or two weeks in March 2018. The moorings are divided into four price bands according to each site’s location and facilities, with most mooring prices held at 2016/17 levels. Some popular sites have increased in price and less popular sites have had a price cut in response to the high or low levels of demand last year. The highest price band has increased by 50p per metre per month to £15.50 (a 3.5% rise). Facilities have been improved at a couple of sites and this is also reflected in the pricing. Boaters have been able to view sites on the CRT website since September and will be able to make a booking from 6 am on 2nd October through the CRT boat licensing site at https://licensing.canalrivertrust.org.uk/Account/Register. A list of the sites and prices can be found at www.canalrivertrust.org.uk/winter-moorings and further information is available from CRT Customer Services on 0303 0404040 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
