Withymead Nature Reserve (RG8 0HS), situated between Goring and South Stoke on the River Thames, is managed by the Anne Carpmael Charitable Trust. With resident wardens, the trustees aim to provide a tranquil haven for wildlife and inspiration to visitors now and for future generations. Bordered by the river Thames on one side and the Ridgeway Path on the other the grounds extend to 22-acres consisting of woodland, marshland and the relics of Saunders’ Boatyard, much of which has remained untouched for many years.
