Maidenhead - An old town with a history harping back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40km from the City of London. Maidenhead has got a populace of close to seventy eight thousand occupants and sits on the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a nice venue for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge plus a superb railway bridge designed in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is additionally famous for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the river in Anglo-Saxon times. The well known bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead slowly became an essential resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was erected over the Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside resort for the prosperous and rich of London and the hotel alongside the Thames came to be the haunt of famous playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway Maidenhead grew rather quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.
