User contributed information about Northampton Embankment moorings
There is over 200m of mooring along the embankment, from approximately 100m east of South Bridge to the lock channel - using lines passed round the metal bollards provided. The embankment is a popular walking and cycling route with benches along its route and overlooked by balconies of the adjacent flats, but does not normally appear noisy. A large Morrisons supermarket is 175m walk from the Wathen Wigg Bridge to the north and across Auctioneer's Way.
