Maidenhead - A historic town with a story going back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly forty kilometers from central London. The town of Maidenhead has a populace of close to seventy eight thousand occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a pleasant centre for checking out the gorgeous nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a fantastic railway bridge designed in eighteen thirty eight by the fabulous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the historical past of those horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The famed National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe developed beside the river in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & it is from this that the town is understood to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into a major stopping off point for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the river to a design by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and rich & the hotel on the Thames became the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. After the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew rapidly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its ideal spot on the A4/ M4 helps it be a very important centre for the area. While a good many commute from Maidenhead to The city of london and some other large towns in the region, the town itself has a certain amount of light industry & provides jobs for many people in such sectors as computer software, plastics & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy & were one of the original 15 competitors in the very first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
