Middle Thames Branch covers the stretch from Mapledurham to Old Windsor.
We are the largest branch in RTS and maintain a full programme of works, both social and practical on the river.
Our river wardens patrol the river bank and report any problems such as trees in the river, overgrown path etc back to RTS or the appropriate authority.
The Society's riverside land, Bondig Bank, is in MTB and we maintain it with help from our volunteers and Thames Path.
Our main concerns centre around planning and we monitor applications from the six authorities in MTB. If an application appears contentious we examine it and make representations where thought appropriate
Our social programme includes our Grand Christmas Dinner at Leander, a black tie cruise on MV Waterman at the Henley Festival, lunch and quiz in January on MV Waterman. We have lunchtime talks with an excellent lunch at either Leander club or Maidenhead Rowing Club. We play an active role at the Thames Traditional Boat Festival in July.
Our more active members enjoy a programme of riverside walks.
In addition to the quarterly issue "Thames Guardian", the MTB Newsletter keeps members updated.
Current Activities (May 2021)
We are delighted that planning issues with the Friday Street slipway in Henley have been resolved.
We are concerned to receive a report of unapproved development on Green Island and are watching developments as the local authority is involved.
Our branch activities are listed in the Events Diary.
