Hawley Meadow Improvements!

Bench at Hawley


We are very pleased to say that several improvements to access are underway at Hawley Meadows.

  1. A level crossing is being installed across the A331.
  2. A cycleway is being installed across the A331.
  3. The main path through the meadows is being resurfaced.

These improvements will mean a safer crossing to the meadow, better access for cyclist and better access for more users on site.

The compound will remain in the car park for the period of works. An estimated 15 weeks from Monday 26th September. We do apologise for the reduction in car parking spaces and any inconvenience caused during this time.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
