Maidenhead - A historic town with a history stretching back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty km from the centre of London. It has a population of approximately 78,000 inhabitants and lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a useful centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge along with a fine railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the exceptional engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is additionally renowned for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous & beauty spot. West of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewers Shire horses can be seen, together with a display on the history of the horses. In the town itself you can observe almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it & this is from where the town is believed to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a very important stopping off point for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the river designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into highly popular riverside destination for the rich & wealthy of London & the hotel alongside the river came to be the hang-out of infamous playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway service the town expanded pretty quickly and in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its strategic setting on the A4/ M4 makes it a fundamental commercial centre for the region. While many travel from Maidenhead to London and some other major towns in the region, the town itself has a smattering of light industry and employs many in such fields as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.
