Maidenhead - An old town with a story stretching back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 mls from the City of London. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of approximately 78,000 occupants & lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a decent place for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge and a wonderful railway bridge constructed in eighteen thirty eight by the fantastic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the historic past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The widley known National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe evolved around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was constructed in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be an important stopping off place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the Thames to a design by the remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the prosperous & rich of London & the hotel on the riverbank became the haunt of well known playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway service Maidenhead expanded swiftly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, developing into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its key setting on the A4/ M4 helps it be a significant town for the area.
