Grove Lock Marina

Set in spacious, landscaped grounds adjacent to both the lock and the pub that shares its name, Grove Lock marina offers all the facilities canal boat owners rightfully expect.

We provide individual, fully equipped private shower and toilet rooms to each of four boats moored on Gold Service berths. This coupled with reserved parking, a wider pontoon and more water space makes the additional annual Gold Service charge real value for money. We believe the thought of a powerful shower with constant hot water whenever it is needed will be immensely attractive to many boaters, their families and visiting friends.

We have also installed as a service to all our moorers a free wi-fi connection that will operate throughout the site enabling quick and easy internet access to all.

We believe that with an excellent pub next door and a wide choice of shops and restaurants a short way away, Grove Lock Marina has everything for the discerning leisure boat owner.

    We are moored here at the moment (Nov.2010-Nov.2011) and it is an excellent marina. The caretaker is friendly and helpful and it’s very close to the M25.
