Maidenhead - A historical town with a story going back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly twenty five miles from the City of London. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of approximately 78,000 & sits on the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is still a great location for discovering the wonderful nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge & also a superb railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the extraordinary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the subject of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is additionally well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the background of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved beside the river in Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & it is from this that the town is thought to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a valuable stopping off place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was built over the river designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the affluent and wealthy of London and the hotel beside the river became the haunt of famous playboys of the time. Following the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead expanded rather quickly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its handy location on the A4/ M4 renders it a valuable commercial centre for the area. While a good many commute from Maidenhead to Central london & other significant towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & provides jobs for many in such industries as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.
