Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story harping back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40km from the City of London. It has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand and lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, yet is a good destination for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge together with a splendid railway bridge constructed in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating meeting place & beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the heritage of those horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famous Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the River Thames during Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & this is from where the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be a key stop off spot for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was built over the river designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for London's rich & wealthy & the hotel by the Thames became the haunt of infamous playboys of those times. Soon after the coming of the railway the town expanded quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' and its handy location on the A4/ M4 renders it a critical centre for the region. While a great many travel from Maidenhead to London and other significant towns in the area, the town itself has a smattering of light industry & employs many people in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead United were established in 1870 & were one of the first fifteen competitors in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
