Maidenhead - An old town with a history stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 25 miles from central London. It has got a population of roughly 78,000 inhabitants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a pleasant centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge together with a wonderful railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill is now a hotel. The famed National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the Thames during the days of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a very important stopping place for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was constructed over the river to a design by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into very popular riverside destination for the affluent and wealthy of London & the hotel beside the riverbank became the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time. After the coming of the railway service the town grew pretty quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, developing into a town in its own right.

Present day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its strategic spot on the M4/A4 makes it a valuable town for the area. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to London and other major towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & employs many workers in such fields as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is renowned for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) who play at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football grounds on the planet. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen entries in the 1st F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
