Clive commemorated at Tices Meadow

Last week Stu led a task at Tices Meadow to install a memorial bench dedicated to the late Dr Clive Andrews. Clive was known to many people along the Blackwater Valley as a tireless walk leader and organiser. The bench and inscription was funded by this colleagues at Friends of the Earth and the Blackwater Valley Countryside.

The bench benefits from a lovely view south over the wet meadow and is a quiet place to rest.

If you’d like to enjoy the bench for yourself, then it’s easiest to access from the entrance on the south side of Pea Bridge on the Badshot Lea Road. Follow the path south east into Tices Meadow and you’ll find the bench on your right.

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’.
