Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past harping back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 km from central London. Maidenhead has a population of roughly 78,000 inhabitants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is still a useful vicinity for discovering the wonderful nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a splendid railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, together with a display on the historical past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe developed by the the Thames during the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The famed bridge across the Thames was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf next to it and this is where the town is believed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into an essential stopping place for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - - 205285The train line arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the River Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside destination for the affluent and prosperous of London and the hotel on the Thames became the haunt of notorious playboys of the day. After the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead expanded very quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.
