Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past harping back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40 km from the City of London. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of approximately 78,000 occupants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is still a pleasant centre for exploring the excellent nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge along with a wonderful railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a display on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from as far back as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the river in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into a key stopping place for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was constructed over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into very popular riverside resort for the rich & prosperous of London & the hotel by the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. After the coming of the railway line the town grew fairly quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' & its ideal setting on the A4/ M4 helps it be a vital commercial centre for the region.
