Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past harping back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty kilometres from the City of London. The town has a population of about 78,000 & rests on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a major 'dormitory' suburb of London, & yet is still a nice centre for discovering the gorgeous nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge & a fine railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a presentation on the background of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famous National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe developed beside the river during the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was made in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf next to it and it is from this that the town is believed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a critical resting place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's rich & wealthy & the hotel on the river became the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway Maidenhead expanded dramatically and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, to become a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' & its strategic spot on the M4/A4 makes it a very important town for the region. While many travel from Maidenhead to London & other large towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has some light industry and provides jobs for many workers in such sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy & were one of the first fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
