South: SP9122 : Grand Union Canal - Moorings South of Grove Lock.

A new marina LinkExternal link is under construction immediately south of the Grove Lock SP9123 : Grand Union Canal - Grove Lock No 28 on the Grand Union Canal, and plans to open in Spring 2010. The area for the pontoons had been excavated, leaving a strip of land to be removed at a later stage to provide access to the canal. My estimate is that it will cater for something like 40 to 50 full length narrowboats.
The site will include a facilities block with shop, toilets and showers, and the site is immediately adjacent to the Grove Lock public house and restaurant SP9123 : Grand Union Canal - Grove Lock Public House and not far from Leighton Buzzard.
