Maidenhead - A historic town with a story harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 40 kilometers from the City of London. The town of Maidenhead has a resident population of approximately seventy eight thousand & stands on the banks of the River Thames. It is a big 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a great centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge along with a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the historical past of those horses.

The well known bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf beside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a key resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.
