Over 40 years of marina operating experience means we understand boater’s requirements and we’ve planned right from the start to meet all of these varied needs. With probably the best facilities anywhere on the canal network, we think you’ll find us hard to beat.

Boat Launching & blacking

With two boat launching docks (one capable of handling widebeams) and a 35 tonne travelling hoist, we’re well equipped to lift and launch virtually any size and shape of craft. Easy access from the main A4304 and located just 10 minutes from the M1 makes us the ideal spot for entering the canal network.

Not just for launching boats, our hoist makes it easy to lift boats for blacking – not just the sides either, we lift high enough to black the bottoms too and our ultra high pressure wash ensures every trace of loose material is removed first.


A well lit, underfloor heated, double bay mechanical workshop makes for an ideal working environment enabling us to tackle all your servicing needs – even accommodating widebeams when required. A separate carpentry and boat fit-out bay sits next door and a specially equipped paint dock beyond that. The latter occupied and run by the acclaimed traditional boat painter John Barnard.

All this means, if there’s work on your boat that needs doing, you won’t find anywhere better to meet your needs.

Covered fuelling & pump-out

No more getting soaked on a rainy day when you need fuel or a pump-out. Our covered services dock provides protection from the elements when needed as well as being a convenient spot to carry out minor repair work.

And much more..
