Maidenhead - A historical town with a historical past going back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is located in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately 40km from the centre of London. It has a populace of around 78,000 occupants & lies on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb for London, but is still a good centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge together with a superb railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the popular brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a presentation on the history of those horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the river in the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is believed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead slowly became an essential stopping 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) and a rail bridge was constructed over the River Thames designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's prosperous and rich & the hotel adjacent to the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of those times. After the arrival of the railway line the town grew very quickly and in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' and its strategic spot on the A4/ M4 helps it be an important town for the region. While many travel from Maidenhead to The city of london & some other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & employs many workers in such industrial sectors as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.
