Maidenhead - A historic town with a history stretching back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty km from the City of London. Maidenhead has a population of about seventy eight thousand inhabitants & rests on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is still a decent centre for checking out the pretty nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a fine railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewers Shire horses can be viewed, together with a display on the historical past of those horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The celebrated Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The former settlement of Maidenhythe started beside the the River Thames during the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The famous bridge across the Thames was constructed in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf next to it & it is from this that the town is assumed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a key stopping off point for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was built over the River Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for the prosperous and affluent of London and the hotel by the Thames came to be the haunt of infamous playboys of those times. Soon after the arrival of the railway Maidenhead expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its strategic setting on the A4/ M4 makes it a fundamental commercial centre for the area. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to London & various other large towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry & employs many workers in such fields as plastics, pharmaceuticals and computer software.

Maidenhead is widely known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) who play at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest grounds around the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen entries in the 1st F.A. Cup competition held in 1871-72.
