Welcome to Bosworth Marina "New Marina â Traditional Values"

Opening in Autumn 2014, on the picturesque rural Ashby Canal near the Warwickshire / Leicestershire borders, and set in 20 acres of landscaped grounds, Bosworth Marina will be home to 150 narrowboats, with 74 jetties of 21 metres and 76 jetties of 18 metres divided into 4 areas of the basin, CARLTON, SHENTON, BOSWORTH AND SHEEPY. Electricity and water is available on each pontoon. The impressive new 5 star 2 storey facilities building includes a reception area, lounge area for boaters, showers, toilets, and laundry facilities. There will be Elsan disposal, pump out facility and fuel and much more. There are full facilities for disabled users.

Car parking will be close and convenient to each berth with roads and footpaths surrounding the basin. Cars will enter via a secure entrance and the jetties also have gated security for peace of mind. In addition the basin will have CCTV and web cam.

Large landscaped areas surround the soft edged marina basin and these include a shallow lake of 4700 m² and a water compensation area of 3500 m² which is adjacent to the canal. Bosworth Marina is close to the home to the SITE OF SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC INTEREST which nestles just outside of the marina and is rich in wildlife. Bosworth Marina supports and protects this SSSI and is replicating the canal habitat within the marina site.

The Ashby Canal is a lockless canal and travels through some of the most peaceful and tranquil countryside in the Midlands area. Travelling from Marston Jabbett through Hinckley, the canal runs close to the village of Stoke Golding, the birthplace of the Tudor Dynasty and on past the Battle of Bosworth.  Shenton, on the way, has the lovely Whitemoors Cafe and Antiques Centre. The Shackerstone steam railway line known as The Battlefield Line is close by and the Bosworth Water Trust is opposite the Bosworth Marina. The water park there has a café, camping and caravan site and a host of water and land based activities. A golf course is almost next door!

Market Bosworth, just a short walk away is a small bustling country town and boasts food shops, supermarket, pubs and restaurants, hotels and cafes, a post office, butchers, pharmacy, doctor and dentist.

The rural bus will park adjacent to the marina making transport easy. No need for a car!  Catch the bus into Leicester, the burial place of Richard III.
