Maidenhead - An old town with a history harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometres from central London. Maidenhead has a resident population of around seventy eight thousand occupants and stands on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of London, yet is a nice centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge & also a superb railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the popular brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, with a presentation on the the historical past of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famous National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the river during the times of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was made in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf next to it & this is where the town is understood to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a key resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was built over the Thames designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's prosperous & rich and the hotel on the riverbank became the haunt of notorious playboys of the time. Soon after the coming of the railway the town expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, to become a town in its own right.

Present day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its strategic location on the A4/ M4 renders it a significant centre for the region. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to The city of london and various other large towns in the region, the town itself has a bit of light industry & employs many workers in such fields as pharmaceuticals, plastics & computer software.

Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the original 15 competitors in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
