Maidenhead Boatyard Podcast

Like a lot of towns in the South East of England, Maidenhead is experiencing a construction boom. Not least because a new, fast rail link into London is planned (albeit delayed) for 2020. So now town centre apartments and offices are being built to meet the perceived demand.

While progress is good, the new buildings seem to overshadow Maidenhead’s rich Edwardian and Victorian heritage. However, on the river Thames, a little way from the town centre is a boatyard that has been operating since 1888. It stands as a reminder of the town’s past.

I talk with the business owner, Michael Fletcher about the yard and its history.

This short podcast was recorded, written and produced by me: David Harden. (further words and pictures can be seen in the ‘Maidenhead Boatyard’ post – click here)
