Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berks county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 kilometers from the City of London. Maidenhead has a resident population of close to 78,000 inhabitants and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but yet is still a decent centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge and a terrific railway bridge constructed in the mid-nineteenth century by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers Shire horses can be seen, as well as a display on the heritage of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from as far back as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the Thames during Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead slowly became an important stop off point for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was built over the River Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside resort for the rich & prosperous of London and the hotel beside the Thames came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway service Maidenhead grew very quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its strategic spot on the M4/A4 helps it be a valuable commercial centre for the region. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to Central london and other significant towns in the area, the town itself has a bit of light industry & provides jobs for many in such market sectors as pharmaceuticals, plastics and computer software.

Maidenhead is famous for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Rd claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches around the world. Maidenhead United were established in eighteen seventy and were one of the original 15 teams in the very first F.A. Cup competition held in 1871-72.
