The 17 acres of landscaping around the soft edged marina basin include a lake of 4700 m² and a SITE OF SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC INTEREST habitat of 3500 m² adjacent to the canal which replicates the waterways habitat and attracts much wildlife. Bosworth Marina is committed to protecting this SSSI which is located on the waterway going towards Carlton.
