Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 25 mls from the centre of London. It has a resident population of about 78,000 inhabitants and lies beside the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a pleasant centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a stunning railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewery's Shire horses can be seen, together with a presentation on the story of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill is now a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The former settlement of Maidenhythe developed around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was constructed in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & this is where the town is supposed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into an essential stop off spot for travellers making 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 constructed over the river designed by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the prosperous & rich of London & the hotel by the riverbank came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of those times. Soon after the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew fairly quickly and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, developing into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key setting on the M4/A4 makes it a significant town for the region. While a great many commute from Maidenhead to The city of london and various other large towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry & provides jobs for many in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead is renowned for its football team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) which plays at York Rd among the oldest football pitches on the planet. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the original 15 teams in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
