Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past harping back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 40 kilometers from central London. Maidenhead has a population of around 78,000 & lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a pleasant centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge & a terrific railway bridge designed in the mid-nineteenth century by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the history of those horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The celebrated house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe started beside the the Thames during Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf next to it & this is where the town is considered to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a vital stopping point for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside resort for the wealthy & affluent of London and the hotel beside the Thames became the haunt of infamous playboys of the time. Soon after the coming of the railway service Maidenhead grew rapidly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, becoming a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' and its key spot on the A4/ M4 helps it be a key town for the area. While many commute from Maidenhead to The City & other significant towns in the region, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and provides jobs for many workers in such sectors as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.
