Maidenhead - A historic town with a story harping back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty km from central London. The town has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants and sits on the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a useful centre for checking out the gorgeous nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge together with a magnificent railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a presentation on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill later became a hotel. The renowned National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The first settlement of Maidenhythe started around the the River Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The well known bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf next to it and this is from where the town is considered to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead became an essential stopping place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the river designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the rich & wealthy of London & the hotel adjacent to the riverbank came to be the haunt of well known playboys of the time. After the arrival of the railway Maidenhead expanded pretty quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, becoming a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' and its strategic location on the A4/ M4 renders it a key centre for the area. While many travel from Maidenhead to Central london & other large towns in the region, the town itself has some light industry and employs many in such industrial sectors as computer software, plastics & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is widely known for its football team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) who play at York Road one of the oldest football grounds on the globe. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the original 15 competitors in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
