Some River Works/moorings on the tidal Thames do not need to pay a PLA licence fee, see this case out this week:

Moreover the burden of proof seems to be on the PLA, not you. They need to prove you do not have an 'ancient mooring'. According to the PLA's own evidence there are 'dozens of ancient moorings' along the river'.  They don't seem very keen to identify them.
