The marina is located adjacent to Aston Lock, just south of Stone on the Trent & Mersey Canal, offering the perfect central location from which to cruise.
The bustling market town of Stone – with its excellent shops & restaurants, and great country pubs – is just a short walk away.
Aston Marina has 200 berths available for long term and temporary moorings, each with metered 16amp electricity, water and card access security gates. The twin basins are over 2.5 meters deep and generously wide – allowing easy manoeuvrability. The unique feature of an entrance and exit negates winding within the marina and further enhances the ease of navigation, as well as encouraging a natural throughput of fresh water.
Amenities are provided through a luxury block, with showers and toilets, Elsan disposal & laundry. Pump-out and diesel are located either side of our iconic miniature Iron bridge, and a card access barrier provides controlled access to ample secure parking for moorers.
The marina office is located in the middle of the site where convenient supplies of coal, gas & logs are available, as well as a book swap library, maps and information on the surrounding area & attractions. We also offer a next day ironing service.
