Maidenhead - A historic town with a story harping back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty km from the centre of London. It has got a populace of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a nice destination for exploring the delightful nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a fine railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers Shire horses can be seen, plus a display on the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can observe almshouses dating from as long ago as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill is now a hotel. The celebrated National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The former settlement of Maidenhythe started beside the the Thames during the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The famed bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf beside it and it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into a very important resting place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the river to a design by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into very popular riverside destination for the affluent & prosperous of London and the hotel on the river became the hang-out of famous playboys of the day. After the coming of the railway the town expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' and its handy setting on the M4/A4 renders it an important commercial centre for the region. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to London and various other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry and provides jobs for many in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

Maidenhead is renowned for its football team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road one of the oldest football grounds around the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the first 15 entries in the first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
