Welcome to the web site of Maidenhead Waterways (MW)... 'bringing the Thames into town'. RBWM's contractor Greenford Ltd has completed the new weir, with its integrated fish/eel pass and boat rollers. The 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.

MW is a registered charity, set up by the people of Maidenhead for the benefit of the town of Maidenhead, and committed to restoring the old waterways that run through Maidenhead town centre. The project is part of  the Royal Borough's Area Action Plan to rejuvenate Maidenhead town centre. 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.
