Maidenhead - A historic town with a history going back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly 40 kilometres from the City of London. Maidenhead has got a resident population of around 78,000 and lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a major 'dormitory' suburb of London, yet is still a useful position for discovering the delightful nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a terrific railway bridge erected in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore famous for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the story of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved beside the the Thames in the days of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf alongside it and this is where the town is understood to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be a critical stopping point for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was built over the river to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's wealthy & rich and the hotel beside the riverbank became the haunt of famous playboys of the day. Soon after the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, becoming a town in its own right.
