Maidenhead - An old town with a story stretching back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 kilometres from the centre of London. The town of Maidenhead has a population of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants and lies beside the River Thames. It is a large 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a great centre for discovering the delightful nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge and a superb railway bridge constructed in the mid-nineteenth century by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is additionally noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the history of the horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill later became a hotel. The celebrated National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the Thames during the times of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the river was erected in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is understood to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a valuable stopping off point for travellers on the route from Bath to London.
