Droitwich Spa Marina - Basin dig nearly finished
Filmed in mid-October 2011, the basin of the Droitwich Spa Marina is nearly finished. The entrance structure is about 35% complete, and around half of the jetties are installed. No sign yet of the facilities building - probably that will start when the earthworks are complete at about the end of October.

Some shots of the earth moving under way at the Droitwich Spa Marina site. This is the second week of construction and poor soil is being replaced with impermeable material. About 10% of the marina appears to have been done so far.

A stretch of canal that's been closed since before the Second World War is to open again to boat traffic. After decades of campaigning and at a cost of twelve million pounds the Droitwich Canal has been fully restored. Bob Hockenhull reports.
Droitwich Spa Marina was featured on the primetime BBC Countryfile programme on the 7th August 2011, watched by 7.1 million viewers.
