STOP PRESS: We were delighted to host an hour long visit on 5th August by Theresa May, MP, PM of the waterway and associated developments currently underway. Theresa is our consituency MP and a long term supporter of the waterway project and its key role in the rejuvenation of Maidenhead town centre. Note: The Waterways Update Exhibition in the 'Friends of Maidenhead' temporary shop in the eastern mall of Nicholson Centre, opposite Marks and Spencer, has been extended to 3rd September. Please come along and see the exhibits, 10-4 on Saturdays.
Maidenhead Waterways Restoration Group (Maidenhead Waterways or MW) is a charity set up by the people of Maidenhead for the town of Maidenhead, to restore and enlarge the old waterways that run through Maidenhead town centre. The project is one of the key elements of the Royal Borough's adopted Area Action Plan to rejuvenate and grow Maidenhead town centre.
Following RBWM's confirmation of the next £3m of funding, Stage 2 of the build has been instructed and will follow on directly from Stage 1. The Green Lane weir will be contracted and built around the end of 2017, to lift water levels in the York Stream throughout the town centre.
