Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past stretching back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40 km from the City of London. It has got a populace of about 78,000 occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a nice centre for discovering the pretty nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a fine railway bridge designed in the mid-nineteenth century by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also famous for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the historic past of those horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the River Thames in the days of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and it is from this that the town is assumed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a crucial stopping off place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.
