Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 mls from the City of London. The town has got a population of roughly 78,000 and lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, but is a great centre for checking out the pretty nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a fantastic railway bridge built in 1838 by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the history of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famed house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the river in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it and this is from where the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a valuable resting place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was built over the Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for the prosperous and affluent of London and the hotel beside the riverbank became the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time. Following the arrival of the railway the town expanded quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its strategic location on the M4/A4 renders it a fundamental town for the area. Although many commute from Maidenhead to The City & various other major towns in the area, the town itself has a bit of light industry & employs many people in such fields as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is famous for its football team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) who play at York Rd claimed to be one of the oldest grounds on the globe. Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy and were one of the original 15 entries in the very first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
