Maidenhead - A historical town with a story harping back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately 25 miles from London's centre. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a good setting for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge & also a wonderful railway bridge erected in the mid-1800's by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore well known for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating assembly point & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewers Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the background of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill is now a hotel. The celebrated house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe developed around the river during Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & it is from this that the town is deemed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead started to be an excellent resting place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's wealthy & affluent & the hotel on the riverbank came to be the hang-out of well known playboys of that time. Following the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, transforming into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its key setting on the A4/ M4 makes it a fundamental centre for the area.

Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the original 15 entrants in the very first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
