Welcome to the web site of Maidenhead Waterways... 'bringing the Thames into town'. RBWM's contractor Greenford Ltd has now finished building the Green Lane weir, with its integrated fish/eel pass and boat rollers. The new weir has lifted surface water levels to fill the already enlarged channels throughout the town centre, enabling fish passage and further improving biodiversity. Shanly Group is also racing ahead with its Phase 3 Chapel Arches (N) development which includes a second water basin and the final linking section of the waterway in that area.

Canoeists and residents flocked to the new Green Lane weir area on Saturday 14th March for a super LAUNCH EVENT and official opening of the first stage of the waterway by Theresa May, MP and RBWM Leader Cllr Andrew Johnson. See all the fun at ...

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 part of  the Royal Borough's adopted Area Action Plan to rejuvenate Maidenhead town centre.

Please see our VIDEO, introduced by Theresa May MP, which explains the background, progress to date (2019) and the waterway's central role in Maidenhead's regeneration... In other news, the waterways project WON a special recognition award in the national Canal and River Trust's Living Waterways 2019 competition. They too have made a video about the project, which can be seen here...
