The town has got a resident population of about 78,000 occupants and stands on the banks of the River Thames. It is a major 'dormitory' suburb of London, however is a great centre for exploring the wonderful nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge & a terrific railway bridge built in 1838 by the celebrated engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place and beauty spot.

The History of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe developed by the river in the days of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is believed to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into an important resting place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.
