Boaters are invited to take a look around a new marina which is nearing completion.

White Mills Marina on the River Nene at Earls Barton will be having the first of this year’s open weekends from 10am until 4pm on Saturday, February 27, and Sunday, February 28.

The open weekend at the new 141-berth marina which can accommodate wide beams, narrowboats and cruisers has been organised to give boaters the opportunity to come and see for themselves exactly what the new bespoke facility at Lock 9 on the River Nene has to offer.

Marina manager Chris Dixon said: “Last year, we held a series of open weekends before the cut through to join the River Nene, however it was difficult to envisage how the marina would look once it was full of water.

“With the marina nearing completion, we have organised some more open weekends to give boating enthusiasts the chance to come and take a look at exactly what we have to offer, and of course reserve a berth whilst we have a good selection available.”

Two further open weekends are planned for the weekends of April 2 and 3 and May 7 and 8.

With Chris now working on site from his boat Bees Knees, White Mills has already started to accept boats for moorings.
