Last week, Geomac Director Richard Melhuish christened Shakespeare Marina by digging the first bucket of soil which has kickstarted the earthworks process for the brand-new and exclusive marina.

The plant has been fired up and we have started the journey of bringing Shakespeare Marina to life. In the next months there will be a series of works to transform the field into a vibrant marina.

These work include:

  • Topsoil removal and storage.
  • Basin formation with access onto the River Avon.
  • Sheet piling and stabilisation area.
  • Towpath bridge over marina entrance from the Avon.
  • All new main Services to be supplied to site.
  • New facilities building with office showers WCs and laundry.
  • Floating Walkways and Mooring Jetties with service bollards.
  • Fuel supply and waste pump-out facilities.
  • New highways access from Seven Meadows Road, internal roads, carparks and foot paths.
  • Landscaping.

This is all part of the plans to create an exclusive marina in a stunning area of the UK surrounded by history and nature.

Geomac is an award-winning marina developer and part of the Land & Water Group, an environmental company passionate about caring for the UK’s coastline and network of waterways, rivers, streams and wetlands.

Today was a poignant moment for us as we start another unique project which uses our unrivalled understanding and expertise of where land and water meet.

Here Richard can be seen with Land & Water’s Site Manager Peter Reynolds as well as Clive Matthews, CEO of Avon Navigation Trust, who will be working alongside the development of Geomac’s Shakespeare Marina. ​

We are very much looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the Avon Navigation Trust as we share a commitment towards maintaining and enhancing the ecology of the UK’s inland waterways.
