Maidenhead - An old town with a history stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berks county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 mls from central London. The town has got a population of around seventy eight thousand occupants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a nice centre for checking out the pretty nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the exceptional engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe started by the the Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it and it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a valuable stopping place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames to a design by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the 19th Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside destination for the wealthy & affluent of London & the hotel on the river came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. Soon after the arrival of the railway service the town grew pretty quickly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, to become a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its ideal location on the A4/ M4 makes it a very important town for the area. While a good many travel from Maidenhead to Central london & other significant towns in the area, the town itself has a bit of light industry and provides jobs for many in such industries as pharmaceuticals, computer software and plastics.
