1921 GWK CAR TO ARRIVE BEFORE EASTER
The car in the photo at the top of this page was built in Maidenhead 101 years ago – and it is still in driving condition. It was bequeathed to the museum by the late Keith Saw, grandson of onw of the founders of GWK. It will be on display at the museum from April 13th and is well worth a look! It is hoped to display the car at Maidenhead Festival and other such events this summer.

Tuesday September 6th 2022 at 10am
Tickets for this year’s cruise are now on sale.
The 2022 cruise will follow the same format as the 2021 cruise. This was a great success, with dry sunny weather for the first part of the cruise, enhancing the gorgeous view of Cliveden from the river (above). There were no delays at locks as we cruised gently upstream through Cookham, Bourne End and Marlow, before turning downriver as far as Bray. before returning to Maidenhead on schedule at 3pm. En route Richard Poad shared his knowledge and love of the river with a live commentary. The fully licensed on board bar served hot drinks as well as alcohol. Tickets on sale now
