Maidenhead - A historic town with a history harping back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is located in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty km from the centre of London. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of close to seventy eight thousand & lies beside the River Thames. It is a significant 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a nice position for discovering the gorgeous nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge as well as a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is additionally famous for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewers Shire horses can be viewed, plus a presentation on the background of the horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famed Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe evolved by the river in the times of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is where the town is considered to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into a crucial stop off point for travellers taking the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was erected over the river designed by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside resort for the affluent & prosperous of London & the hotel alongside the riverbank came to be the haunt of infamous playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway service the town grew rather quickly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, developing into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key spot on the M4/A4 renders it a vital centre for the region. While a great many travel from Maidenhead to The City and other significant towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a bit of light industry & provides jobs for many in such sectors as pharmaceuticals, plastics and computer software.

Maidenhead is well known for its football team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches on the globe. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the first fifteen teams in the 1st F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
