16th January Battlemead, Maidenhead
Battlemead was bought by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead 3 years ago. 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 planting a willow screen on either side of the causeway to reduce disturbance to wildlife by people and dogs.
