Billing Marina

Billing Marina is part of Pure Leisure’s country park of Billing Aquadrome. Situated on the River Nene in Northamptonshire in the heart of the UK it is easily accessible from all parts of the country. It is a large marina with 180 berths and full facilities.

All berths on the marina are on floating moorings, alleviating worries about your boat’s safety as the water levels in the River Nene rise and fall. All moorings have access to mains water and electricity. Pets (dogs and cats) are welcome.

Summary
Paul Smith
 

After six and a half years living on a narrowboat on England's inland waterways, Paul and his wife Cynthia wandered Europe by motorhome during the winter, and on the Dutch and French waterways in the warmer months on their 35' Dutch motor cruiser. However, the pull of England's muddy ditches proved too much for them. Now they're back where they belong, constantly stuck in mud in a beautiful traditional narrowboat.
