Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past harping back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 40 km from central London. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of around 78,000 occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is still a good position for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a superb railway bridge erected in 1838 by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's Shire horses can be seen, plus a display on the background of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The famous house of Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the River Thames during Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it and this is from where the town is deemed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a crucial resting place for travellers on 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 constructed over the Thames designed by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside resort for the affluent & prosperous of London & the hotel by the Thames came to be the hang-out of infamous playboys of that time. Soon after the coming of the railway Maidenhead expanded very quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, becoming a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its handy spot on the A4/ M4 makes it a key town for the region. While many travel from Maidenhead to The City & other significant towns in the region, the town itself has a smattering of light industry and provides jobs for many in such fields as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.
