Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past harping back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about twenty five mls from the centre of London. Maidenhead has a populace of about 78,000 occupants & stands on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a great centre for checking out the lovely nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a fine railway bridge designed in eighteen thirty eight by the famed engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers Shire horses can be seen, plus a display on the history of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill is now a hotel. The well known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the the Thames during Saxon times. The well known bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it & it is from this that the town is thought to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be an excellent stopping off point for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the River Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the prosperous & affluent of London & the hotel by the river became the hang-out of notorious playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway line Maidenhead expanded swiftly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its ideal spot on the M4/A4 makes it a major commercial centre for the area.
