When we decided to open the marina six days a week, we thought we should kick it off from 1st May, how typical was it therefore, to discover after broadcasting it to all and sundry, that 1st May was a Tuesday - the one day of the week that the marina and the boathouse is closed! So we were one day late officially launching the boathouse's extended hours to six days a week. Not that it seems to have mattered at all, as we have had a steady flow of visitors throughout the past three days.
And to coincide with our new opening hours, we took delivery today of six rather lovely and incredibly sturdy benches which have now been given pride of place on the decking outside the boathouse. Visitors this Summer will be able to enjoy the stunning views over the marina and beyond whilst drinking superb coffee and indulging in some very delicious, freshly prepared refreshments. So remember if you are planning a visit to the River Nene at White Mills lock in Earls Barton, do pop in and see Carrie and the team at the boathouse, but please do not forget that the marina and the boathouse are both closed on a Tuesday.
