Maidenhead - A historic town with a history stretching back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40 km from the centre of London. The town has a populace of close to 78,000 occupants and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a great destination for exploring the delightful nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge & a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the extraordinary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewers Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a presentation on the history of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The renowned house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the river in Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a significant stopping place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside resort for London's wealthy & affluent and the hotel by the Thames became the haunt of infamous playboys of those times. Soon after the arrival of the railway line the town expanded quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, developing into a town in its own right.
