Maidenhead - A historical town with a history going back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 40 kilometres from the City of London. The town has a population of around seventy eight thousand inhabitants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a great vicinity for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a wonderful railway bridge constructed in eighteen thirty eight by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also famous for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous & beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, along with a presentation on the historical past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the the River Thames during Saxon times. The famed bridge across the River Thames was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & it is from this that the town is thought to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into a vital stopping point for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the Thames designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside resort for London's rich & wealthy & the hotel beside the river came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. After the coming of the railway line Maidenhead grew fairly quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, to become a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its handy setting on the M4/A4 makes it an important commercial centre for the area. Although many travel from Maidenhead to The City & other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry & employs many in such market sectors as pharmaceuticals, plastics and computer software.
