The Island benefits from some wonderful facilities, some great annual events and a strong caring and supportive community
Temple Mill Island
Residents benefit from the following
The Island has a large communal garden, that is beautifully landscaped and managed by our gardeners. This provides a number of seating areas for local residents to watch the river flow by or to meet with friends and enjoy a sundowner.
The Island Marina
The Island has a purpose built marina for the residents. There is also mooring available for residents on the Upper and Lower Millstreams.
The Island arranges a whole range of community events including the Summer Picnic, Christmas Eve Carol Singing, Remembrance Gathering and many more events.
Swam Upping is the annual census of the swan population on the River Thames. This takes place every July. The Queen’s Swan Marker and the accompanying Swan Uppers of the Vintners’ and Dyers’ Livery Companies use six traditional Thames rowing skiffs in their journey upstream, where they make a stop at Temple Mill Island to record our local swan population.
The River provides the opportunity to partake in a wide range of water-based activities. This is complemented by various clubs nearly including Bisham Abbey Sailing Club and the Marlow Rowing Club.
