Pictures of the Jacobean Lane area subject of a recent canal marina proposal

 

A public presentation by developers was held at the Greswolde Hotel recently in which plans for a possible marina on the canal at Jacobean Lane were on display. The Society’s photographer offers pictures of the area involved and an aerial view to help to relate the views.

Views 1, 2 and 3 look from the bridge on the footpath over the canal directly onto the area proposed for a new marina of 140 narrow-boat berths, parking for 50 vehicles and a small facilities block (toilets and washing). View 4 looks across the field on which a new access road would run from Jacobean Lane (not exactly along the line of the arrow we show). View 5 looks along the existing path from Grove Farm towards the marina’s entrance at the end of an access road – this path would remain unchanged. View 6 shows the entrance to Grove Farm which has no direct relevance to the proposal but helps to appreciate the location. These pictures do not attempt to give any impression of the proposed marina but only to show the existing location.
