Maidenhead - A historic town with a history going back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 25 miles from the City of London. Maidenhead has a population of approximately 78,000 occupants and lies beside the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of London, though is still a great centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a splendid railway bridge built in 1838 by the superb engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the inspiration for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was made in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and it is from this that the town is deemed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a major stop off place for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.
