Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 25 mls from the City of London. The town has got a resident population of approximately 78,000 inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a nice centre for checking out the attractive nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a fine railway bridge designed in the mid-nineteenth century by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is additionally well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the famous brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from as far back as the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the river during the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The well known bridge across the river was made in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and it is from this that the town is thought to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a critical resting place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.
