Welcome to Barton Marina

Barton Marina, situated on the Trent & Mersey canal, is the ideal central base to explore the Midland’s waterways and beyond.

Purpose built in 2001, Barton Marina is privately owned and we are very proud of the reputation we maintain as the finest inland waterways marina in the UK. Permanent, centrally-heated buildings house our showers, laundrette and marina office. Our workshop facilities are second-to-none, with a hydraulic boat lift giving quick and easy access to the dry dock.

The boat marina forms part of an 85 acre National Forest woodland site. Visitors can wander around the two large lakes to watch and enjoy the flourishing wildlife.

As you will see on this website Barton Marina isn’t just a place to moor your boat, we have entertainment and events throughout the year. The Waterfront pub & restaurant presents locally-sourced good food daily and has 7 guest real ales on offer.
