Full description

Riverside plot with mooring and fishing rights on the River Nene, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

* Riverside mooring plot * Very rural location * Approximately 70' river frontage by 80' deep * Private access road *

Location: Manor Meadows is situated on a beautiful, tree-lined stretch of the River Nene to the west of the road between Fotheringhay and Tansor. The historic, conservation village of Fotheringhay lies about half a mile down stream. As you approach the village, ones eye is drawn to the magnificent church of St Mary, formerly an ecclesiastical college in the XIV Century. Passing through the ancient arched bridge, to the left is the site of the castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and beheaded, the mound of which can still be seen adjacent to the river. The Falcon is a public house and restaurant of some note and for those seeking a more energetic life, there are a number of footpaths and bridleways in the locality, leading from the village across the superb countryside around. The historic market town of Oundle lies about three miles to the South and offers a good range of family run shops, businesses and restaurants, set around the traditional market place. Peterborough lies about 11 miles away and offers extensive shopping and leisure facilities as well as main line rail travel with journey times to London from about 48 minutes. 

The River Nene & Navigation: This beautiful watercourse rises near Northampton and flows through the county and into Cambridgeshire at Wansford. It then flows past Peterborough to Wisbech and into the North Sea at The Wash. The river supports an abundance of wildlife including otters, eels, plenty of fish varieties and birds. The Nene is an important navigation link between the Grand Union canal at Northampton and the Middle Level, which crosses the Fens and links with the rivers Great Ouse and the Cam, allowing boats to reach the Fenland market towns as well as Cambridge, Ely and Bedford. There are marina and boatyard facilities at Northampton, Thrapston and Stanground. The river comes under the control of the Environment Agency which issues licences and lock keys. 

Manor Meadows: A rare opportunity to purchase a freehold plot within a beautiful countryside setting and river frontage with mooring and fishing rights. This plot has approximately 70' river frontage and measures approx 80' in depth from the top of the bank. It is envisaged that the plot offers space for recreation and camping in a wonderfully rural setting. The site is within a large field some distance from the highway and accessed via a private gated roadway. There is a communal water point for the use of the owners of each plot. The previous owners of plot 3 have installed a pair of landing stages to service a narrow boat in the region of 50' to 60' in length, one for the bow and one for the stern.
