Maidenhead - A historical town with a story harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 25 mls from London's centre. The town has got a population of close to seventy eight thousand and stands on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a pleasant centre for discovering the delightful nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge and also a fine railway bridge built in 1838 by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting for Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, together with a display on the historic past of the horses. In the town itself you can observe almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill is now a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the river in Saxon times. The famed bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built beside it and it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a vital resting place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was erected over the river to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's affluent and wealthy and the hotel by the riverbank came to be the haunt of infamous playboys of the day. After the arrival of the railway line the town grew fairly quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, to become a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its handy location on the M4/A4 renders it a significant commercial centre for the area. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to London & other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a certain amount of light industry & provides jobs for many in such industrial sectors as pharmaceuticals, computer software and plastics.

Maidenhead is respected for its soccer team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) which plays at York Rd one of the oldest football pitches on the planet. Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy and were one of the original fifteen entrants in the very first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
