Welcome to the web site of Friends of Maidenhead Waterways (FoMW)... 'bringing the Thames into town'. We are 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.

Please see FoMW's VIDEO, introduced by Theresa May MP, which explains the background, progress to date (2019) and the waterway's central role in Maidenhead's regeneration... The project WON a special recognition award in the Canal and River Trust's Living Waterways 2019 competition. Their promotional video on the project can be seen here...

As we started the New Year, most FoMW activities again had to be suspended due to the pandemic. RBWM is also under severe budget pressure currently which will inevitably pace further progress, but the Shanly Homes Chapel Arches North development is moving ahead still. A second water basin there has been completed and was filled at the end of February 2021. It completes the final stage of the York Stream of the waterway, joining up the already completed up and downstream sections.

STOP PRESS: With through passage now possible from Town Moor to the new weir at Green Lane, FoMW is pleased to announce a Waterways Family Fun Day to be held on 25th September, in partnership with Rotary and RBWM. It will focus on the Chapel Arches and amphitheare areas, with a canoe cavalcade, stalls, entertainment and activty on and off the water. More details at..."
