As with other such owners it is allowing the 'free roam' system, whereas moorers from any of its marinas have free moorings at another, with its Managing Director, Mark Morgan telling:

"I look forward to meeting Barton boat owners over the coming weeks; myself and the management team will be on-site regularly should you have any queries. A programme of improvement works are scheduled to include anti-slip grid-mesh walkways on the pontoons, modernisation of toilets and showers."

There will be the addition of a chandlery, and the introduction of Lakeland Leisure Boat Sales.

The contributor tells that he hopes  the new owners are better than ABC Leisure who took over Kings Orchard Marina from Pridewater!
