Maidenhead - A historical town with a history going back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berks county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometers from the centre of London. The town has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a pleasant site for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge & a terrific railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the acclaimed engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating assembly point & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, together with a presentation on the story of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The initial settlement of Maidenhythe evolved beside the the Thames during the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The famed bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead started to be an excellent stopping off point for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the river to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for the prosperous and rich of London & the hotel by the river became the hang-out of well known playboys of the day. Soon after the coming of the railway the town expanded fairly quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.
