Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past stretching back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty km from the City of London. Maidenhead has got a population of around seventy eight thousand inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but yet is still a great centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge along with a superb railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, with a presentation on the background of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can see almshouses dating from as far back as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill later became a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the river in the times of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and it is from this that the town is believed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into an important stopping off point for travellers taking the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was built over the river to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and affluent & the hotel on the riverbank came to be the haunt of famous playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway service Maidenhead expanded very quickly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its key location on the M4/A4 makes it a fundamental town for the area.

Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the original fifteen teams in the first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
