Where can you stop?

Along the river there are various mooring points. Most of these are sign posted but bear in mind that some may make a charge.

What if it’s your first time on a boat?

There is normally a lock keeper at every lock who will operate the lock for you. Just pull in slowly, place the mooring line around one of the bollards and hold the line securely until the gates open. You can then proceed out of the lock.
