Crockers Farm Marina - Shardlow- Warning

Featured Posts

With the Derwent now at record levels in Derby, and still rising, Crockers Farm marina will be underwater tonight , perhaps worse than it ever has been. 

The Derwent when this high comes straight across the fields and across the marina , over the canal and into the Trent.

Boats tied too tightly might not rise enough.

Take care folks, and look after the boats around you.

of which there are more and more each year since Sawley Cut became a short stay option only.

Boats can be replaced. Lives cant!

Lots of people live in that marina, the majority of the boats I would say.

With the water levels as.they are and just going into winter, I can't see things improving any time soon.

So thankful to be on a relatively safe mooring.

Indeed, but I understand Sawley Cut is also under water!

All boats and people safe. Water levels peaked at midnight. Levels above a fair few pontoons. Odd boats needed minding to watch they did not come back down on the pontoons as levels dropped. Water levels subsided substantially today. Enough to be able to drive onto marina

Well I beg to differ, lives can be replaced quite easily, only takes 30 seconds...

 

But I know what you meant!

For aficionados, it's fun to take your time, you should try it. ?

I rarely get anywhere near 99 these days - and I used to be fully ambidextrous.

69, Shirley? 99 is Nicks preferred number. 

I'd better get my coat.

How dull. 696 is more my thing.

 

Anyway, I’m feeling bad now for trivialising a serious subject. I hope everyone /every boat in the marina is OK.

Someone will feel left out then. Unless you mean 699.
