Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately forty kilometres from the City of London. Maidenhead has got a resident population of about seventy eight thousand and lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a decent centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge as well as a stunning railway bridge built in 1838 by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewery's Shire horses can be seen, with a display on the historic past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The renowned Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe started around the river in the days of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a significant stop off place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into very popular riverside destination for the rich and prosperous of London and the hotel adjacent to the river became the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time.
