Maidenhead - A historical town with a historical past stretching back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately forty km from the City of London. The town has a population of around 78,000 inhabitants and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a pleasant centre for checking out the excellent nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge together with a terrific railway bridge built in 1838 by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely known brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the history of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can see almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill is now a hotel. The renowned house of Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe developed beside the the River Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is understood to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a valuable resting place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the river to a design by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside resort for London's rich and wealthy and the hotel on the Thames came to be the haunt of famous playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway line Maidenhead expanded rather quickly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.
