Maidenhead - A historic town with a story stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in Berks county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly twenty five miles from the City of London. It has got a resident population of around 78,000 inhabitants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, though is still a nice centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge and a superb railway bridge fabricated in eighteen thirty eight by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely known brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The famous house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the Thames in Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was made in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it and it is from this that the town is assumed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into a very important stopping point for travellers making the route from London to Bath.
