Spring news!

Café 1804

Bosworth Marina’s fully licensed  Café 1804 now has its own website http://www.cafe1804.co.uk The website will soon have lots of news, and will also include opening times and menu options.
The cafe’s decorating by Heidi, our manager, is almost finished, and our artist’s impression of The Ashby Canal is nearing completion. The brand new state of the art kitchen equipment is now installed and Josh is busy constructing  the bar. We have full disabled access and facilities.
There is a pedestrian entrance off the canal footpath by the top of the towpath bridge. Car, cycle and pedestrian access is through the main entrance off Carlton Road and round to the visitors’ car park by the building. There is also a regular bus service which stops at the junction of Wellesborough Road and Carlton Road, close to the marina entrance.

Harry and Sally, Bosworth Marina’s day boat

The website for the day boat is available to view – please click here. Harry and Sally is now becoming a familiar sight along the canal, as she takes passengers for full and half days and taster trips. Short passenger trips will also be available when Café 1804 opens in May. The boat has been a success in all weathers, as she has full central heating for colder days and roll up canopies when the sun shines.

Site Works

Ben and his team, along with Outlook Landscaping, have been planting trees, bushes and hedging around the marina basin and wildlife areas. There have been nearly 2000 saplings and trees planted so everyone has been very busy!
Two new security gates have been installed at the entrance to the boaters’ car parking areas. In addition, work continues on the spine road from the marina entrance to the building, ready to be surfaced in May, along with some of the footpaths. The new visitors and café car park is also under construction which will create extra car parking spaces for our café and day boat visitors.
