Thanks Bob, that's very helpful and the Town Quay was perfectly fine as you suggested. The facilities worked! We will bear in mind what you say about longer term mooring while waiting for weather on the Wash.

Peterborough 'Embankment' (Town Quay) is now a No-Drinking area which keeps away most of the drink abusers that used to be an occasional problem. Anywhere between Town Bridge (the main road bridge after the railway bridges) and the next white road bridge (just before the right turn into the cut to Stanground Lock) is usually fine. Just before the Key Theatre is a sign indicating trip boat moorings. The trip boat no longer operates, so that is a good place to moor.

Also, just before the Peterborough Yacht Club there is a sharp right turn into Ferry Meadows Country Park. There are very good public moorings there for at least 8 boats, if you don't mind the wildlife in the mornings. It is supposed to be 24 hour stay but in school term midweek you are unlikely to even see a Ranger, let alone get moved on.

Good Luck
