Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past going back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40 km from London's centre. Maidenhead has got a resident population of about 78,000 occupants & rests on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, yet is a decent centre for checking out the wonderful nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a stunning railway bridge erected in the mid-1800's by the exceptional engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is additionally renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the background of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the river in Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was built in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is from where the town is supposed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a major resting place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.

Through the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for London's wealthy & affluent and the hotel adjacent to the riverbank became the haunt of well known playboys of that time.
