Marina opening delayed due to weather
The opening of a village marina has been delayed due to the recent bad weather.
A new 249-berth site north of Cropredy is due to open in April but following recent snow and rainfall, construction is now expected to be completed by July.
Tim Langer, developer of Cropredy Marina, said: “Our contractors have done a brilliant job to get as far as they have and despite awful conditions, have managed to keep work going on site until mid-January. The main basin is already fully excavated, and the canal entrances have been built.
“However, the ground is now so waterlogged that they have had to suspend operations for a few weeks. The project is fully funded, so as soon as the site dries out a bit they will be back on the job.”
