Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past stretching back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about forty kilometres from London's centre. The town of Maidenhead has a populace of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants and sits on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of London, yet is a good centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a terrific railway bridge fabricated in 1838 by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a key stopping point for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into highly popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and rich & the hotel beside the river became the haunt of notorious playboys of those times. Soon after the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead grew dramatically & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its strategic setting on the M4/A4 helps it be a valuable centre for the region. While a good many travel from Maidenhead to The City & other major towns in the area, the town itself has some light industry & provides jobs for many in such fields as pharmaceuticals, computer software & plastics.
