It has got a resident population of about seventy eight thousand occupants & lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a major 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a useful locale for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a wonderful railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous and beauty spot.

In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill is now a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the river in the times of the Saxons. The famed bridge across the river was erected in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and this is where the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the constructing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to be a key resting place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - - 205285The railway line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was erected over the river designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into highly popular riverside destination for London's rich and wealthy and the hotel adjacent to the river came to be the haunt of notorious playboys of that time. Soon after the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead expanded very quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, to become a town in its own right.
