Maidenhead - A historical town with a historic past stretching back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around twenty five mls from central London. The town of Maidenhead has a resident population of about 78,000 inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb for London, and yet is still a nice centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a wonderful railway bridge built in 1838 by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the background of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as the 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 celebrated Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe started around the the Thames in the days of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the River Thames was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & this is from where the town is thought to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a valuable stopping point for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the River Thames to a design by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside destination for the prosperous and rich of London and the hotel by the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway line the town grew dramatically & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, to become a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key location on the A4/ M4 renders it a significant centre for the area. While many travel from Maidenhead to The city of london and additional large towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and employs many workers in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead is known in sporting circles for its football team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road recognized as one of the oldest grounds in the world. Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the first 15 entrants in the very first F.A. Cup competition held in 1871-72.
