The town of Maidenhead has got a resident population of roughly 78,000 occupants & lies beside the River Thames.

The River Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a fantastic railway bridge constructed in eighteen thirty eight by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the river in the days of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and this is from where the town is considered to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead became an essential stop off point for travellers taking the journey from London to Bath.
