The Society has had a long-standing interest in the state of York Stream. In 1964 we persuaded the Council to clean up the town centre section and this subsequently provided the route through Maidenhead for the Green Way. When the stream stopped flowing in 1988 we campaigned to get it flowing again and became an active member of the group formed to solve the problem that still meets as the Green Way Working Group (GWWG). In 2002, after the stream dried for a second time, we produced a report on the Status of York Stream that reviewed past problems with the stream. We have contributed to a project that aims to limit reed growth in the stream by organising periodic targeted spraying.
