One small step for Shakespeare Marina – One giant leap for your boating experience.

Last week, Geomac Director Richard Melhuish christened Shakespeare Marina by digging the first bucket of soil which has kickstarted the earthworks process for the brand-new and exclusive marina.

The plant has been fired up and we have started the journey of bringing Shakespeare Marina to life. In the next months there will be a series of works to transform the field into a vibrant marina.

These work include:

  • Topsoil removal and storage.
  • Basin formation with access onto the River Avon.
  • Sheet piling and stabilisation area.
  • Towpath bridge over marina entrance from the Avon.
  • All new main Services to be supplied to site.
  • New facilities building with office showers WCs and laundry.
  • Floating Walkways and Mooring Jetties with service bollards.
  • Fuel supply and waste pump-out facilities.
  • New highways access from Seven Meadows Road, internal roads, carparks and foot paths.
  • Landscaping.

This is all part of the plans to create an exclusive marina in a stunning area of the UK surrounded by history and nature.

Geomac is an award-winning marina developer and part of the Land & Water Group, an environmental company passionate about caring for the UK’s coastline and network of waterways, rivers, streams and wetlands.

Today was a poignant moment for us as we start another unique project which uses our unrivalled understanding and expertise of where land and water meet.

Here Richard can be seen with Land & Water’s Site Manager Peter Reynolds as well as Clive Matthews, CEO of Avon Navigation Trust, who will be working alongside the development of Geomac’s Shakespeare Marina. ​

We are very much looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the Avon Navigation Trust as we share a commitment towards maintaining and enhancing the ecology of the UK’s inland waterways.
