Maidenhead - An old town with a story harping back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometers from the centre of London. Maidenhead has got a population of roughly 78,000 occupants and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a nice destination for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge and also a fantastic railway bridge built in 1838 by the acclaimed engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the background of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famed Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The original settlement of Maidenhythe evolved by the river during Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was made in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it and this is where the town is presumed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to be a crucial stopping point for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames to a design by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside resort for the affluent & wealthy of London and the hotel on the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. After the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew dramatically & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, developing into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its ideal location on the M4/A4 helps it be a vital town for the region. Although many travel from Maidenhead to Central london and other major towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry & employs many people in such industrial sectors as computer software, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is known in sporting circles for its soccer team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football grounds around the world. Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition held in 1871-72.
