Maidenhead - A historical town with a historical past harping back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately 40 kilometers from central London. Maidenhead has a populace of roughly 78,000 occupants and stands on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a great venue for discovering the interesting nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a terrific railway bridge erected in 1838 by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the the historical past of the horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famed house of Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the river during the days of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and it is from this that the town is thought to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a critical stopping point for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was built over the river to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's wealthy & rich & the hotel beside the riverbank became the haunt of well known playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway the town grew pretty quickly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its handy spot on the A4/ M4 helps it be a critical commercial centre for the area.
