Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty kilometres from central London. The town of Maidenhead has a resident population of about seventy eight thousand occupants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb for London, but yet is still a great venue for checking out the excellent nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a stunning railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating rendezvous and beauty spot. West of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the background of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famous house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe started around the the River Thames in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & this is from where the town is deemed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into a very important stopping off point for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for the wealthy and rich of London & the hotel on the river came to be the hang-out of infamous playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway line Maidenhead grew very quickly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, developing into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its strategic setting on the M4/A4 helps it be a very important commercial centre for the area.
