The Natural Choice

On the peaceful Trent and Mersey Canal, Mercia Marina offers first class facilities at competitive prices in a beautiful nature-rich environment in Derbyshire.  The combination of full length jetties and wide open space makes for easy manoeuvring, mooring and boat restocking.

Mercia Marina is a series of small marinas offering all the services of a large marina, but with the informality, friendliness and close knit community of a small one. A place where people sincerely care for one another and a helping hand is always available; be part of the Mercia community.    

You are most welcome to visit the marina. Open 7 days a week

Hear what Mercia Marina boaters
have to say

'We choose Mercia Marina because of its location -slap bang in the middle of rail, road and waterway networks; five years on I don't believe another marina could suit us better regardless of location! There's an amazing group of people creating a strong community, a wonderful environment with wildlife, trees and greenery, peace and quiet if you want it or social events to enjoy'. - Jo James
