Maidenhead - An old town with a historical past stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 kilometres from the City of London. It has a population of close to seventy eight thousand occupants and sits on the River Thames. It is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a decent centre for exploring the delightful nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a splendid railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely known brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a display on the historical past of those 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, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill is now a hotel. The renowned National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the Thames in the days of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and this is where the town is thought to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a vital stopping off place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the River Thames designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into very popular riverside resort for the affluent & wealthy of London & the hotel alongside the river came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of the day. After the coming of the railway service Maidenhead grew very quickly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its key setting on the M4/A4 helps it be an important centre for the area. Although many travel from Maidenhead to London and some other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has some light industry and employs many in such market sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

Maidenhead is respected for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road recognized as one of the oldest football grounds around the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the first 15 teams in the very first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
