Maidenhead - An old town with a historical past stretching back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 40 km from the centre of London. It has a populace of roughly seventy eight thousand and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a nice centre for checking out the charming nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge as well as a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewery's Shire horses can be seen, plus a presentation on the heritage of those horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The renowned house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe started beside the the Thames during Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a valuable stopping off place for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the River Thames designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into very popular riverside destination for London's prosperous & affluent and the hotel on the Thames became the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. After the coming of the railway service the town grew rapidly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, becoming a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its handy spot on the M4/A4 renders it a crucial commercial centre for the area. While a good many travel from Maidenhead to Central london and various other big towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a bit of light industry & employs many in such industries as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.
