Case Study

Rural Capital Programme - Bosworth Marina

Bosworth Marina is a rural project which was supported by the LRP's Rural Capital Programme 2013-14.

The Marina is situated on the Ashby Canal just outside Market Bosworth. The Rural Capital grant helped to enable the construction of a Marina facilities building which includes a reception area, a chandlery/shop, toilets, showers and lounge area. Full disabled facilities are in place on the basin and in the building. There is an adjacent Site of Special Scientific Interest which replicates the canal habitat within the marina site.

2 full time jobs were created and 1 part time by the project. Boaters using the facility support the local economy by using local bus services and visiting Bosworth for shopping and social occasions.
