Longport Wharf

Home of Stokeboats
 
Longport Wharf is a place on the waterways on the Trent and Mersey Canal (Main Line - Etruria to Hardings Wood) between Junction with Burslem Branch Canal (disused) (6¼ furlongs to the southeast) and Hardings Wood Junction (Junction of Trent and Mersey Canal and Hall Green Branch) (3 miles and 4 furlongs to the northwest).
 
 
The nearest place in the direction of Junction with Burslem Branch Canal (disused) is Middleport Winding Hole; ½ furlongs away.
 
The nearest place in the direction of Hardings Wood Junction is Longport Road Bridge No 126; ¼ furlongs away.

Mooring here is tolerable (it's just about possible if really necessary) , no information available. Plenty of mooring space but it suffers from urban noise/disturbance. Preferable to overnight in the Festival Park - better security.

Facilities: diesel for sale, gas for sale and boatyard pump-out.

The place is a Wharf and a Boatyard.

OK for a short stop to look at bottle kilns etc - excellent chip shop west side.
