User contributed information about Rickmansworth Basin
It is wholly given over to permanent moorings. Access is boat owners only.\\The very short stretch of canal is set out with fishing points for disabled users.\\The reeds are very thick and the lock gates at the junction end secured with a chain and padlock so there is no access to turn.\\It's better to do so by the Tescos on the main canal. There is a small car park for moorings only and the CRT rubbish point is in one corner.
