New Tylden Road bridge hides the old bridge and Haggonfields lock until you are almost on them
Ahead beyond the rail bridge is Doefield Dun lock. This is self bridged to a footpath which can be followed to the Miners’ Welfare Club at Shireoaks Road bridge.
At the Miners’ Welfare are three moorings, one is occupied by Nb Archimedes and another by the nameless “James” (that’s the name on the licence). The third is Python’s official mooring.
Through Shireoaks Road bridge are the three Shireoaks locks.
Shireoaks Middle lock is another narrow one: fenders up or off, please!
The well signed marina is on the old colliery loading pond it’s a sharp right and under the towpath bridge. It has long term moorings, electricity, water, pump out, Elsan disposal, toilets, showers and parking. A BW key is required. There is no diesel.
