Canal Side Land with Mooring (Plot A) on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal

An opportunity to acquire one of two canal side plots being sold freehold with vacant possession with potential for use, investment, or resale. The plot is circa 0.45 acres with approximately 32 metres canal frontage. The land is situated adjacent to bridge 149 of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, on private gated land, with access by foot, enjoying spectacular, far reaching. panoramic views over beautiful open countryside. The canal is relatively wide and straight at this point. The land currently has permission from the Canal and River Trust for an end-of-land mooring permitting the current land owner to moor their boat all year round. Buyers will be required to apply for their own approval. The boat should not exceed 18.90 metres in length.




The land offers the opportunity for a purchaser to acquire this manageable sized parcel of land which has the additional potential for recreational use, fishing, or future development, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions and approvals, but interested parties must rely entirely on their own enquiries and decisions in this respect . The land currently has full planning permission for mixed agricultural and equestrian use subject to restrictions. Any water supply would need to be investigated by the new owners and will be the buyers responsibility to ascertain what, if any, planning permission may be required for their proposals.


Adjacent to these two plots is a further stretch of approximately 120 metres of canal bank which also had in-principle permission from the Canal and River Trust for winter mooring. This lapsed in January 2020 but can be reapplied for. A Certificate of Lawfulness for winter mooring has also been issued by the Local Planning Authority. This land also has full planning permission for mixed agricultural and equestrian use. This stretch of bank is not included in this offer but may be available by separate negotiation through Auction House.
