Maidenhead - An old town with a story stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40 kilometers from central London. The town of Maidenhead has got a resident population of approximately seventy eight thousand & stands on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a great centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a stunning railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the superb engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the famous brewers Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as far back as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The renowned National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the River Thames during the days of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and this is where the town is presumed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into a vital resting place for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and affluent and the hotel beside the Thames became the hang-out of well known playboys of those times. Soon after the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead grew pretty quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its strategic location on the A4/ M4 renders it a key commercial centre for the area. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to The City and various other big towns in the region, the town itself has some light industry & provides jobs for many in such market sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen competitors in the 1st F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
