Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past going back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about twenty five mls from central London. It has a population of about 78,000 inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a nice position for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge along with a superb railway bridge fabricated in the mid-1800's by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, plus a presentation on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The famous National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved around the the River Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is supposed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a valuable stopping off point for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was constructed over the river designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into highly popular riverside resort for the wealthy & affluent of London and the hotel adjacent to the river became the hang-out of well known playboys of those times. After the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead expanded pretty quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.
