Facilities provided by the Environment Agency (EA) for the use of boaters on the River Nene are free of charge unless otherwise stated. Charges may apply at other, non-EA operated sites.
EA moorings are designed with your safety in mind, particularly for when river flows and levels may be higher than usual. Visitor moorings can get very busy during the summer months. Make time to plan ahead and arrive in good time.
Local marinas, boat clubs, councils, some landowners and other organisations all provide a variety of moorings, sanitary facilities, slipways, chandlery and fuel sales along the River Nene. Charges apply at some sites; please check local signage for details.

EA Water Points
Water points are fitted with the type of connection shown in this photograph to comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, as required by Anglian Water, the water supplier. You will need your navigation key to operate our water points, plus a female push-fit connector to attach your hosepipe to the fittings.
