The free moorings are accessed from a narrow dyke that leads from Barton Broad. Gays Staithe is the first you will come across. Stern moor here.

Both mooring spots have access to the village with the White Horse Public House and a village store, though Gays Staithe is a little further away. Refuse bins near to moorings.
