Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story going back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometers from the City of London. It has a population of around seventy eight thousand & stands on the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a good centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a superb railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is additionally renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a presentation on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating 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 neighbouring Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the Thames in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & this is from where the town is thought to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a valuable resting place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.
