In a much-anticipated move, Lakeland Leisure Estates has announced a major expansion of the renowned Roydon Marina Village on the edge of London.

The first phase of this expansion, set to complete in March 2024, will bring an array of enhancements to the marina. New widebeam and narrowboat moorings will be introduced, featuring cutting edge composite anti-slip walkways for safety and ease of access and smart card electric bollards for convenient power supply.

Additionally, a brand new facility building will be constructed, providing essential amenities such as bathrooms, laundry facilities and Elsan services, ensuring that boaters have all their needs met on site.

New electric vehicle chargers will be installed on site, as well as new recycling bins for environmental sustainability.

The access road leading to the marina will be improved and resurfaced, ensuring a smooth and hassle free arrival.

Phase Two: A New Boatyard and Slipway
