Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past stretching back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about forty kilometers from the City of London. The town has got a populace of close to seventy eight thousand and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb for London, although is still a nice centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge & also a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the exceptional engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers Shire horses can be seen, along with a display on the history of those horses. In the town itself you can observe almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved beside the river during Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was made in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is presumed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a significant resting place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the river designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's affluent & prosperous and the hotel adjacent to the river came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway line the town expanded dramatically and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key setting on the M4/A4 makes it a very important commercial centre for the region.
