The town of Maidenhead has a populace of about seventy eight thousand and lies on the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, nevertheless is a nice place for discovering the lovely nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a fine railway bridge constructed in eighteen thirty eight by the fabulous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating meeting place and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, together with a display on the story of the horses.

The famed bridge across the Thames was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is from where the town is thought to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe').
