The mooring tackle (the weights, chains and buoys) is the sole property and responsibility of the mooring licensees. It may be possible by private negotiation to purchase any existing tackle from the outgoing licensee. Existing tackle can be lifted and surveyed, and serviced by Mr J. Smith, an independent contractor who also lays new mooring tackle when required. The positions and numbering of the moorings are monitored by the National Park Authority.

Should you wish to proceed, please complete and return the mooring application form to Jen Little at the Dalemain Estate Office, who will then contact you to advise of the positions and numbers of the vacant moorings and whether any existing tackle is available.

Further information about the Ullswater area is available from Tourist Information Centres at Glenridding and Pooley Bridge.
