Maidenhead - An old town with a historical past going back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in Berks county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 40km from central London. The town of Maidenhead has a populace of roughly seventy eight thousand & lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a pleasant centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a stunning railway bridge fabricated in eighteen thirty eight by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous & beauty spot. West of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the background of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The initial settlement of Maidenhythe developed beside the river in Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it and this is where the town is thought to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead started to be a valuable stopping off point for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the River Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
