Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past going back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly forty km from central London. It has a resident population of around 78,000 occupants and lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a decent area for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a splendid railway bridge built in 1838 by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely known brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a presentation on the history of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The famous National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the the River Thames during Saxon times. The famous bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it and it is from this that the town is assumed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a critical stopping place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was erected over the river designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead developed into very popular riverside destination for the rich and wealthy of London & the hotel alongside the riverbank came to be the haunt of notorious playboys of the time. Following the arrival of the railway Maidenhead expanded quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, developing into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its ideal spot on the M4/A4 helps it be a major centre for the region. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to London & various other major towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has some light industry & provides jobs for many in such industries as computer software, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

Maidenhead is well known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road one of the oldest football grounds in the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the original 15 teams in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
