Maidenhead - An old town with a historical past harping back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead is located in Berks county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 40 kilometres from the City of London. It has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand & sits on the banks of the River Thames. It is a significant 'dormitory' suburb for London, & yet is still a nice centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a splendid railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also famous for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, together with a presentation on the history of those horses. In the town itself you can see almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The famous National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the river during Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was made in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead evolved into an excellent stopping place for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the River Thames designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside resort for the prosperous & affluent of London & the hotel beside the Thames came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway service the town expanded quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, becoming a town in its own right.
