Moira Furnace – Conkers Slipway
This entry has been updated 18/5/2017. (Thanks to Jane Pilgrim for bringing this to my attention)
Whilst a search on Google for Conkers produces the following information and address, DO NOT USE IT FOR THE SLIPWAY!!:
CONKERS website: http://www.visitconkers.com/visiting/findus
Rawdon Road (B586)
This is NOT the road into the Conkers slipway.
Much better to use the address for Forest Holidays below, which you approach from the south via A444 Acresford Rd -> Moira Rd -> Bath Lane -> Bath Yard.
DE12 6BA – USE THIS POSTCODE FOR SAT NAVS!!!
This slipway provides access to the isolated section of the Ashby Canal at Moira Furnace. Access to the festival site is up through a lock or an easy walk along the canal.
Cars and trailers are NOT stored here but on the festival site, about 5 minutes drive away or a 15 minute walk along the canal.
The car park is free but can get busy with visitors to the National Forest site and the slipway can get blocked.
