Maidenhead - A historical town with a story going back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 km from central London. It has a populace of close to 78,000 occupants and stands on the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a good centre for checking out the pretty nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge along with a wonderful railway bridge erected in 1838 by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting of Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. West of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the popular brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, plus a display on the background of those horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The celebrated National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The well known bridge across the Thames was made in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and it is from this that the town is supposed to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a major stopping off place for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the river designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside resort for the prosperous and rich of London & the hotel alongside the riverbank came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of those times. After the coming of the railway line the town grew quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its key spot on the M4/A4 renders it a significant centre for the area. While a great many commute from Maidenhead to The City & various other major towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & employs many people in such sectors as computer software, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is known in sporting circles for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Rd recognized as one of the oldest football pitches around the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
