Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about forty km from London's centre. The town has got a population of roughly seventy eight thousand & sits on the River Thames. It is a major 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a good location for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a fine railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the the historical past of the horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The renowned National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved beside the the Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was erected in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & it is from this that the town is considered to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to be a very important stop off place for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

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