Maidenhead - A historical town with a historic past going back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 40 kilometers from central London. The town has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand & rests on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a good centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge as well as a fine railway bridge fabricated in the mid-1800's by the superb engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the inspiration for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is additionally known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, accompanied by a presentation on the the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the river in the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The well known bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & this is from where the town is deemed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a very important stop off place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside resort for London's affluent and wealthy and the hotel adjacent to the riverbank came to be the haunt of well known playboys of those times. Soon after the coming of the railway the town expanded dramatically & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its strategic spot on the M4/A4 renders it a major centre for the area. While a great many travel from Maidenhead to London & additional big towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a smattering of light industry and provides jobs for many in such market sectors as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is widely known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches on the globe. Maidenhead United were established in 1870 and were one of the original fifteen entries in the 1st F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
