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.
Local Plan: Seven-hundred new houses every year to 2033 ...visit page
The High Street through the ages
This is a good example of co-operation between
the Society and the major property owner in Marlow.
We will seek other similar opportunities whilst
strictly maintaining our independence.
... We decided to make a splash with a well
presented message that promoted the role
and achievements of your Society....
To our delight 24 new memberships were registered.
We welcome all those who joined ...
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.
