Maidenhead - A historical town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 25 miles from London's centre. Maidenhead has got a population of about seventy eight thousand & stands on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is still a decent region for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge & also a superb railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the legendary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is additionally known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous & beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers Shire horses can be seen, plus a display on the story of those horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The celebrated National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe started around the river during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it and it is from this that the town is supposed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a very important stop off place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.
