Welcome to The Marlow Society

The Marlow Society is a registered charity whose efforts are devoted to the preservation and development of Marlow and the surrounding villages and countryside.

We seek to represent all those who enjoy living in, working in, shopping or just visiting our beautiful town situated on the banks of the River Thames, in the foothills of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A404 Bisham Roundabout - Public Consultation

The Highway's Agency has proposed several options for the improvement of the Bisham Roundabout on the A404. These were exposed at an exhibition on 19 / 20 Jun 15. Details of the 3 prominent options are shown here: visit page. The option of a flyover or an underpass linking the Bisham and Maidenhead roads were displayed. Making changes that speed up traffic on the A404 but which result in longer queues at both ends and the same total transit time makes little sense. The aim must surely be to facilitate the egress of local traffic.

Dr Rachel Brown:

 

Dr Rachel Brown

It is with the deepest sadness and regret that I have received the news of the death of Dr Rachel Brown. Rachel, a Vice President of the Marlow Society, was a stalwart of the Society for many years and a true Marlovian.

 

Her funeral will be held at 1200h in All Saints Church on Wednesday 24 June 2015.

 

The family will welcome you, after a private interment has taken place, to raise a glass at High Rews Farm in Rachel's memory.

 

Martin Blunkell
Chairman, Marlow Society.
