The Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a stunning railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the fabulous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'.

The famed bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and this is where the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a critical resting place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.
