Maidenhead - A historic town with a story going back to far off Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in Berks county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometres from central London. The town has got a resident population of around seventy eight thousand and lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of London, but yet is still a decent locality for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge & a superb railway bridge erected in eighteen thirty eight by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, with a display on the story of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as long ago as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The renowned National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the the River Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and this is from where the town is presumed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a significant stopping off place for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the River Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for the prosperous and affluent of London and the hotel beside the river became the haunt of notorious playboys of that time. Soon after the coming of the railway service the town expanded rapidly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its strategic spot on the M4/A4 renders it a key commercial centre for the region. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to Central london & some other big towns in the region, the town itself has some light industry and provides jobs for many people in such market sectors as plastics, pharmaceuticals & computer software.

Maidenhead is renowned for its football team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) who play at York Road one of the oldest football grounds on the globe. Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy & were one of the first 15 entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition held in 1871-72.
