About Fradley Marina

Fradley Marina is a well-appointed, secluded and welcoming community where berth-holders will benefit from a range of modern facilities in an un-crowded setting. At the core of that approach is the fact that we’ve planned the site to optimise quality of environment over boats per square inch of water space.  If this sounds like the type of marina you’ve been looking for then drop us a line and we can talk you through the details.

Connected but quiet

Located in the tranquil farmlands between the historic villages of Fradley and Alrewas in Staffordshire, we sit on the popular Trent and Mersey Canal, just a stone’s throw from Fradley Junction and the famous ‘Mucky Duck’ pub.  We’re just a few minutes from the A38, giving easy access to the M6Toll and the national motorway network.  That said, its rare to hear any of those roads from the marina.


Peace, quiet & privacy

The Marina consists of three interconnecting ponds that have been sympathetically designed to shelter one narrowboat from another. The way the ponds have been built means that boats will have privacy, natural screening and in some cases, access to an area of greenery around the boat.


All the facilities for long term leisure narrowboats

With a capacity of 60 boats and with most pontoons measuring 60ft or more, each mooring has metered electricity, wi-fi & fresh drinking water.  Just a short walk from every mooring is waste disposal and sanitary facilities as well as a purpose-built shower block. Our slipway and large workshop building is also now open for enquiries ranging from painting, new boat builds, cabinet making and alterations to your existing boat, surveys, blacking, mechanical and electrical repairs or upgrades. In fact almost any service your boat could need.

If all that sounds like the kind of marina you’d like to keep your boat at then why not drop us a line.

Local villages and amenities

The marina sits on Daisy Lane between the villages of Fradley and Alrewas . Both villages have pubs, shops and other conveniences. Each village is less than a mile from the marina on the towpath and we are fortunate to have a designated cycle and public footpath at the bottom of our driveway.

Just a few miles further down the road is the beautiful cathedral city of Lichfield, itself just 18 miles north of Birmingham. Attractions within a few miles include the National Memorial Arboretum, Cannock Chase & Alton Towers
