Maidenhead - An ancient town with a history going back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty kilometers from central London. The town has got a populace of roughly 78,000 inhabitants and sits on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a nice area for exploring the pretty nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the fabulous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the historic past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe evolved around the river during the days of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and this is where the town is thought to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be an essential stopping off point for travellers taking the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was built over the Thames designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside resort for London's prosperous and affluent & the hotel beside the Thames became the hang-out of well known playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway service Maidenhead expanded pretty quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, to become a town in its own right.
