Maidenhead - An old town with a story going back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40km from central London. It has a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand and lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a useful locale for checking out the lovely nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge and a fine railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the background of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill is now a hotel. The famous National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the the River Thames during the days of the Saxons. The famed bridge across the Thames was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & this is from where the town is thought to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a significant resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the rich & wealthy of London and the hotel alongside the river came to be the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time. Soon after the arrival of the railway the town grew rather quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its strategic spot on the M4/A4 renders it a vital commercial centre for the region. While many commute from Maidenhead to The city of london & some other big towns in the area, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & provides jobs for many workers in such industrial sectors as plastics, pharmaceuticals and computer software.

Maidenhead is respected for its football team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) which plays at York Road one of the oldest football pitches around the world. Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy and were one of the original 15 entrants in the 1st F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
