Battlemead Common was bought recently by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead. It is opposite Cliveden and was previously part of White Place Farm.

A hedge of 4000 whips is being planted parallel to the Thames Path. The WMCV task has been moved to a SATURDAY so that we can join Wild Maidenhead and Wild Cookham and hopefully finish planting the hedge before the end of the hedge planting season. If there is time we will also mulch the hedge.

We can’t park at the site (there is a new car park on the A4094 side of the site but it’s a long walk). The nearest place to park is Islet Road at the end of which is a footpath to the Thames Path; turn left at the Thames Path and walk towards Cookham. However parking is limited and you may have to park in one of the neighbouring streets.

28th April Battlemead Common, Maidenhead
Battlemead Common was bought recently by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead. It is opposite Cliveden and was previously part of White Place Farm. It stretches east to west from the Thames to the A4094 Lower Cookham Road.

We will be removing tree guards from a hedge about half way across the site and to the north.

Meet in front of the barrier at the new car park off Sutton Road (look out for WMCV arrow). The site doesn’t officially open until July which is why there is no Battlemead Common sign and the car park is locked. If there is no space here park in Sheephouse Road.
