Maidenhead - An old town with a history going back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly forty km from central London. The town of Maidenhead has got a populace of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a pleasant centre for checking out the pretty nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge together with a superb railway bridge built in 1838 by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point & beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the story of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The initial settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the the River Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and it is from this that the town is understood to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead slowly became an excellent resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

In the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and affluent and the hotel by the riverbank became the haunt of notorious playboys of the day.
