Maidenhead - A historic town with a history stretching back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 km from London's centre. It has a resident population of roughly seventy eight thousand occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a useful centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge & also a superb railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's Shire horses can be seen, with a display on the the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the Thames in Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be an important stopping point for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.
