The mooring tag marks an area of bank where boats are explicitly permitted to moor to e.g. stay for the night, load passengers or offload goods. A commercial mooring point can be tagged as mooring=commercial. Mooring info is attached to the relevant stretch of towpath, or to a new dedicated way alongside the canal or river if there is no towpath.
