Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past going back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately forty km from the centre of London. The town of Maidenhead has a population of around seventy eight thousand occupants and sits on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is still a useful locality for exploring the excellent nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a superb railway bridge designed in the mid-nineteenth century by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, together with a presentation on the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the River Thames during the times of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is where the town is believed to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a key resting place for travellers making the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's rich & wealthy and the hotel on the river came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead grew dramatically & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key setting on the M4/A4 helps it be a valuable commercial centre for the area. While a good many commute from Maidenhead to The City and various other major towns in the area, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and provides jobs for many in such market sectors as pharmaceuticals, computer software & plastics.

Maidenhead is well known for its football team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football grounds on the globe. Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy & were one of the first fifteen teams in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
