Frouds Bridge Marina is ideally situated on the Kennet and Avon canal. To the East of the marina the Thames and the rest of the system, to the West, the beautiful country side of West Berkshire, Wiltshire and beyond not to mention the famous Caen Hill Flight.


In the heart of the Thames Valley, Frouds Bridge Marina is set within calm and peaceful grounds joining the Kennet and Avon canals and rivers. When first established in 1997, the marina provided moorings for 100 boats but over the years, the marina's popularity grew to a point where a second basin was dug to provide another 60 moorings. Purchased by Wasing Estate in 2022, Frouds Bridge now provides a spacious and boat focused marina with 160 moorings using 9,000ft of wooden jetties. We also have a successful brokerage facility and with a selection of boats on brokerage at any one time, we are able to offer a variety of boats to suit a wide range of potential buyers. The chandlery stocks and provides all services berth holders may need from coal, logs and firelighters to red diesel.

In 2023, exciting development plans began to enhance the marina’s facilities and services it provides, whilst preserving the peace and tranquillity that it is famed for. The first major additions to Frouds Bridge were a floating dry dock, dubbed the ‘Wasing Whale’, and a paint tent, providing out-of-water services including blacking, anode replacements & rudder & skeg works.

At Wasing, we see things differently. That we are inherently part of nature and that what harms the planet ultimately harms us. Everything is connected. We are committed to making conscious decisions regarding the environment within our stewardship to enable people and nature to thrive. The marina is bursting with wildlife including several varieties of fish, herons, cormorants, moor hens, otters, badgers, mink, water voles, birds of prey and around 10 different species of bat and we strive to balance the needs of the boats whilst promoting great habitat for flora and fauna.

As one of the most diverse rural estates in England, Wasing is truly unique - a special place to celebrate, connect & grow. The Estate is home to one of the finest wedding venues in the country and is a stunning space where exceptional events are hosted, including immersive music concerts at woodland amphitheatre, The Mount. The farm underpins Wasing's 'Estate to Plate' ethos by providing delicious organic produce and has implemented a large Countryside Stewardship scheme across the Estate aimed at enhancing biodiversity across the estate and improving water quality. Wasing Wellbeing offers the opportunity to connect with self, each other and nature through rejuvenating retreats, workshops & wild swimming.
