Stonebridge Meadow, part of Stonebridge Wild River Reserve, is a short walk from the centre of Marlborough, situated between St Martin’s and London Road.
The Stonebridge Wild River Reserve comprises of 15 acres of water meadow, where a circular walk is maintained for visitors. This stretch of the River Kennet is managed as an exemplar of a chalk stream and on the opposite riverbank there is a wooden boardwalk (suitable for disabled access).
The site is managed for people and wildlife, with volunteers facilitating many of the plans including planting hedges, river restoration and creating a wildflower meadow.
Future plans include digging a wildlife pond and a reedbed to filter runoff before it enters the river.
Throughout the seasons Stonebridge has a variety of wildlife to be enjoyed – kingfisher and water vole to name but two.
Action for the River Kennet run public moth nights, bat walks and led wildlife walks throughout the year.
