Maidenhead - A historical town with a history stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40km from the centre of London. Maidenhead has got a population of approximately seventy eight thousand inhabitants & sits on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a major 'dormitory' suburb for London, though is still a decent centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge & a stunning railway bridge constructed in 1838 by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the background of the horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the river during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf beside it & it is from this that the town is supposed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be a critical stopping place for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was erected over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead evolved into very popular riverside destination for the affluent & prosperous of London and the hotel adjacent to the riverbank became the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. After the coming of the railway line Maidenhead grew pretty quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its handy setting on the M4/A4 helps it be a valuable commercial centre for the area. While many travel from Maidenhead to The City & other large towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has some light industry & employs many in such fields as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy & were one of the original 15 entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
