Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 40 km from central London. The town has got a resident population of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants & sits on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a useful position for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge and a terrific railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the subject of Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's twelve Shire horses can be seen, along with a display on the historic past of the horses. In the town itself you can find almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The famed National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

The History of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the Thames in the days of the Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was made in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it and it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead started to be a key stopping place for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was erected over the River Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Following the arrival of the railway line the town grew swiftly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, to become a town in its own right.
