As the weather is getting warmer, people by Beeston Marina say the sun is a bonus to the beautiful and relaxing spot. The marina has a lot of visitors such as narrowboat owners who are living ‘a great life’ on the River Trent, fishermen, people parked up living out of a van – as well as dog walkers and walkers who say ‘it’s so lovely’.

Located by the River Trent, you can find Beeston Lock, and ‘nice places to grab a drink’, like the Riverside Bar and Beeston Marina Boathouse Cafe. Brothers, Terry, 74, and Micheal, 72, both were out by the river fishing, they had only caught some ‘small ones’ so far and told Nottinghamshire Live how relaxing it is by the Beeston Lock and the marina.

Michael, from Nottingham said: “I come here once a week – people come round and talk to you, see if you’ve caught anything. It’s just relaxing, away from everything and you haven’t got to think about what’s going on in the world.

“There’s a little cafe, the scenery and boats. It’s nice. They keep it nice and clean and there’s a lock. People come down and come down with canoes and paddle around.”

Derek Youngs, has owned a narrowboat since mid September last year, told Nottinghamshire Live that the Beeston Marina is a beautiful place to be. The retired developer said: “It’s just a lovely place to come – days like this are just a bonus. The community – people in the vans, van living – you meet lots of nice people and strike up a conversation with people walking around.

“Everyone knows each other like the van living regulars. A very nice community. It’s a great life – it’s just a beautiful area to be.”
