The town of Maidenhead has a populace of around seventy eight thousand & sits on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb for London, but is a pleasant centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a superb railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'.

The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The former settlement of Maidenhythe grew up by the the Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built adjacent to it & this is from where the town is believed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a significant stop off place for travellers on the route from London to Bath.
