Pennington Waterside & Marina

Plank Lane, Leigh, Lancashire, WN7 4EZ
01159 077427


An exclusive development in a smart, modern setting

Pennington is a newly built marina with moorings for narrowboats, widebeams and cruisers. Part of a wider residential development on the outskirts of Leigh, there are plans for a café, community centre, and a family-friendly pub and shop. With new, non-slip pontoons, a smart facilities block and the friendly team, who are onsite regularly at the marina office, it’s a modern and popular marina. Mooring here, you are on the Leigh Branch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, linking directly to the Bridgewater Canal, a much-loved stretch for cruisers, and convenient for the wider waterways. The local town, Leigh is on your doorstep, Manchester is just 20 miles away, and you can reach the motorway network in under 10 minutes.

Life on the water at Pennington Waterside and Marina

I love the time I spend on my boat at Pennington Waterside & Marina - it's a completely different pace of life and there is a good community spirit among berth-holders. It's a great base for cruising too, four hours into Manchester City Centre via the Bridgewater Canal.

John, Captain of Pintail
