Using the neat and intuitive Openstreetmap.org map editor, I have updated OpenstreetMap.org displaying the excavated and now filled marina basin. The Sibson Marina basin is now connected to and navigable from the River Nene. The depth of the entrance and the basin is between 3 and 6 m.
The Sibson Marina Project is progressing well. The basin has been excavated, clay lined and will soon be filled. The map composition below shows the details of the mooring arrangements and approximate position of the anchor blocks and additional bouys. There is space for up to 27 main mooring blocks (green dots) at 10 m […]
