Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story going back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 25 mls from the centre of London. The town has a population of about seventy eight thousand occupants & lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a decent locality for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a fine railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the the historical past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe started beside the river during Saxon times. The famous bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a very important stop off place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was constructed over the Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into very popular riverside resort for the affluent and prosperous of London & the hotel on the riverbank became the hang-out of well known playboys of that time. After the arrival of the railway line the town expanded rapidly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' and its key location on the A4/ M4 renders it a valuable town for the region. While a great many commute from Maidenhead to London and some other large towns in the area, the town itself has some light industry & employs many in such market sectors as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is widely known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) which plays at York Road one of the oldest grounds in the world. Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy & were one of the first fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
