Maidenhead - A historic town with a story harping back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40 km from the City of London. The town has got a resident population of roughly seventy eight thousand occupants and rests on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, although is still a decent destination for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a wonderful railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the prominent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, plus a presentation on the story of those horses. In the town itself you can see almshouses dating from as far back as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill is now a hotel. The famed house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the river in the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The well known bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead got to be a vital resting place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the Thames designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside resort for the rich and wealthy of London & the hotel on the Thames came to be the haunt of notorious playboys of that time. After the arrival of the railway service Maidenhead grew fairly quickly and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, developing into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its ideal spot on the M4/A4 makes it a major centre for the area.
