Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past harping back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about forty km from central London. The town has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand and sits on the banks of the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a decent site for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge and a fantastic railway bridge erected in the mid-1800's by the fantastic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, along with a presentation on the background of those horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from as long ago as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe evolved by the the Thames in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & it is from this that the town is understood to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into a valuable stopping off point for travellers on 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 built over the river designed by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside destination for the wealthy and rich of London and the hotel beside the Thames came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. Following the coming of the railway the town expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' and its handy location on the M4/A4 renders it a critical town for the area. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to The City & additional big towns in the region, the town itself has a bit of light industry & provides jobs for many in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead is respected for its football team Maidenhead United (known as the Magpies) who play at York Rd one of the oldest grounds on the globe. Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy & were one of the original fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
