In March 2015, Mark Deadman, a director of WCL Quarries Ltd. revealed a possible plan to turn Cranebrook Quarry  adjacent to the canal at Summerhill into a Marina. When the quarry is finally exhausted instead of filling it in and returning it to heathland it could be connected to the restored canal and turned into a marina. It would also provide valuable water storage for the canal.
