    Default Long-term moorings on the Thames near London?

    Hello! I joined this forum as I am looking for a mooring on the Thames for my 60ft narrowboat. I live aboard. I have looked at a few places just from the outside but am interested in some personal views about marinas or other mooring spaces near London. One place really caught my eye - Platt's Eyot. The island was locked so I couldn't get on, but it looked exactly like what I was looking for. A bit secluded, not too posh. I heard a rumour in another boater forum that boaters are being evicted from there, but no details. Is there anybody here with a mooring on Platt's?
    Other recommendations would also be highly welcome.
    Thank you!!

    I think Richard at Bell Weir boats may have some moorings. Pretty close to Egham station for Waterloo.

    Platts Eyot (porthampton) is owned by Shanly group (Sorbon estates). Their main thing is housing so I would imagine at some stage the island will be redeveloped and moorings offered to property owners. just my theory !
