The Green Way


In 1981, plans were laid for an ambitious streamside ‘linear park’ running from Cookham to Bray and carrying the countryside right into the heart of Maidenhead.  This was developed from an idea by Peter Nevell of East Berks Ramblers. Now known as the Green Way, this project has been incorporated in the Maidenhead Local Plan and was the winner in the category “Best Environmental Initiative” in the “Central Southern England in Bloom” competition in 1993.  The full chronology of how this was all achieved can be read here.


An introductory leaflet was published by the Society in May 1985, and further editions have been produced with Society support – the most recent, the 4th version, being in 2009.  Printed copies should be available in the Town Hall and Maidenhead Library, but you can download a copy here.
