A tour round Scarisbrick marina

Yesterday when we visited Tugboat Tony at Scarisbrick he gave us a guided tour of the marina so I took a few photos to compare what it looks like now, to last time we saw it. When it was just a big hole in the ground!
 
These were taken in August 2008 as we were trundling past on the Leeds Liverpool canal…

Stood on the bridge over the marina entrance looking down the canal towards where we took the original photos in 2008…

Nice views, but even now, two years later, it seems desolate and unfinished. Services that were planned don’t exist, and landscaping is minimal.
 
With a lot of investment, a complete redesign, and everything finished off, it could be lovely…!
