Club Facilities

The club boasts a number of enviable facilities available for the benefit of members.

LCC Clubhouse Bar

The Club Bar

Clubhouse

The clubhouse has been converted by members from the original two Canal Company cottages at the junction between the Coventry Canal and the Wyreley & Essington Canal. The clubhouse provides two main ground floor lounge rooms, maintaining many of the original cottage period features. There is a well equipped kitchen, and a cosy bar located in the original toll office.

Upstairs, there is a games room with pool table, a television lounge, store rooms and toilets.

Moorings

The club provides in excess of 3000 feet of mooring, the majority of which is located off-line on the length of the original Wyreley & Essington canal. Being water that is rented by the club from the Canal & River Trust (formerly British Waterways), it is not open to non-members, and thus provides secluded and peaceful linear moorings, most of which have well maintained grassed areas adjacent to them. This arm is also provided with a 50 ft. winding hole a short distance before the end of navigation at Cappers Bridge. The moorings in this area are therefore limited to boats up to a maximum length of 50 feet.

In addition to the moorings on "the arm", there are also a limited number of moorings available within the club grounds on the main line of the Coventry Canal. Whilst these are less secluded, they are not limited to a maximum of 50 feet, and there is generally a longer waiting list for moorings in this area.

 

The Club Slipway

The Club Slipway

Slipway

At the end of the main mooring arm, there is a slipway capable of handling boats of up to 60 feet, available for use by members without further charge. The slip area is enclosed with a "poly-tunnel" covering to provide sheltered working conditions, and the slip is operated by a diesel-powered winch. Members are therefore able to undertake blacking and other maintenance tasks that require the boat to be out of the water on a do-it-yourself basis without having to pay commercial rates for hire of a slip or dry dock.

 

Pump-out & Elsan Disposal

There is pump-out equipment for members to use, as well as a point for emptying elsan toilets.

 

Gas & Diesel Supplies

The club supplies gas and diesel for members at advantageous rates. These supplies are not available for non-members.
