Maidenhead - A historical town with a historical past going back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly twenty five mls from the centre of London. Maidenhead has a population of roughly seventy eight thousand and sits on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a great centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge together with a terrific railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the superb engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's Shire horses can be seen, with a display on the history of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill is now a hotel. The famed house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The initial settlement of Maidenhythe developed by the the Thames during Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf next to it and it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead got to be an important stop off point for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was erected over the River Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into very popular riverside resort for the affluent & wealthy of London and the hotel alongside the Thames became the hang-out of infamous playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead expanded rapidly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' and its ideal spot on the M4/A4 makes it a crucial centre for the region. While many commute from Maidenhead to London and some other significant towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a bit of light industry & employs many workers in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead is famous for its football team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) who play at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches in the world. Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy and were one of the original fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
