Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly 40km from London's centre. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of close to 78,000 occupants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a pleasant locale for exploring the lovely nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition famous for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous & beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely known brewers Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a display on the the historical past of the horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famous Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the river in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was built in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and this is from where the town is believed to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a key stopping point for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was built over the Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the wealthy and rich of London & the hotel by the river came to be the haunt of well known playboys of the day. Soon after the coming of the railway service Maidenhead grew swiftly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its ideal spot on the A4/ M4 renders it an important commercial centre for the region.
