The county’s newest riverside marina is set for two more open weekends before its grand opening.

White Mills Marina, on the River Nene at Earls Barton, is open to the public from 10am to 4pm on September 5 and 6 and two weeks later on September 19 and 20.

The 141-berth marina – set to officially open at the business end of October – exhibited at Northampton’s Festival of Water at Beckets Park.

And with keen interest from festival goers, the team at White Mills are expecting the final two open weekends to be well supported.

Marina manager Chris Dixon said: “The response we had from visitors to our stand was very encouraging, with the majority of people saying that they would like to take a look before they book, so we are expecting to be busy.

“The marina is really taking shape now, so there will be much more to see than at our previous weekends.”
