Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead lies in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately forty km from the centre of London. Maidenhead has a population of roughly 78,000 & stands on the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb for London, but yet is still a great location for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge together with a terrific railway bridge designed in the mid-1800's by the exceptional engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore famous for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the popular brewers Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a presentation on the historic past of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is where the town is believed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a very important stopping off place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was built over the Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside resort for London's affluent and wealthy & the hotel alongside the riverbank came to be the hang-out of infamous playboys of the time. After the arrival of the railway line the town expanded rapidly & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its ideal location on the A4/ M4 helps it be a fundamental town for the region. While many commute from Maidenhead to London & additional significant towns in the region, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry & provides jobs for many people in such industries as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy and were one of the first 15 entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
