|Barden Mill with its extensive water frontage|

At present the mill occupies the lower third of this map (left): Reedley Marina is in the centre; and the proposed expansion is at the top of the plan. where the water appears blue.
The new extension will differ from the current marina in two particulars. Firstly, at its southern end, there will be purpose-designed berths for wide-beam boats to moor in pairs,.
Secondly, it will be a lay-by design which is cheaper to construct and more convenient for access by the wide-beamed boats which are popular on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal..
The view of Pendle Hill , however, will remain - just shared by more boaters.
