With reference to the thread on this subject, Short dyke (moorings), but with a wider interest, just who is authorised by law to erect No Mooring signs preventing mooring.

As far as I can see it is only the Broads Authority and all others are therefore only requests that you should not moor. Bearing in mind that it is unlawful to prevent the lawful mooring of a vessel, do any of the non authority signs have any validity?

i always believed you can stop as close as you like to the bank, but as soon as you touch the land that is privatly owned you are tresspassing or liable to a mooring charge if somewhere like salhouse ???

I would have thought ignoring a no mooring notice on private property makes you guilty of trespass and even possibly criminal damage.

Two mud weights set correctly, keep you a foot from the bank and you are not moored up to the bank. So no trespass.

BUT you are preventing the owner of the land from using that mooring for himself. So is this obstruction?

Try that outside your local boatyard on changeover day!!

There must be more to this than we first think.

but what constitutes lawful mooring? are we getting all "magna carta" again and suggesting that it is lawful to moor anywhere because we are on a tidal waterway. I doubt whether that would hold up anymore.

I find it a bit depressing that there are so many "no mooring" signs around the broads, but in reality the depressing thing is that they are needed. I would not think of trying to moor to the end of somebodies private garden but sadly many would if signs did not tell them not to.

I have a theory that No Mooring signs say more about the land owner than the boater, just a thought.

Effectively, in law as I understand it, the bed of the river belongs to the landowner so using a mudweight might well be regarded as trespass too.

"do any of the non authority signs have any validity?"

I understand this where they is private grounds/gardens but we come down twice a year and see these signs against mooring that look like they've been used a lot over time and always wonder if some are put up by boat users to reserve fav spots for fishing etc, seems to more appearing. On the Ant there seems to be loads.
We always joke saying about putting a sign on the 'big tree mooring' we use for fishing.
