Maidenhead - An old town with a historical past going back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about twenty five mls from London's centre. The town has a resident population of about seventy eight thousand occupants & sits on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is still a good area for exploring the wonderful nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a fine railway bridge erected in eighteen thirty eight by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous and beauty spot. Found to the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, plus a display on the background of the horses. In the town itself you can observe almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The renowned National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The well known bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf beside it & this is from where the town is understood to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead started to be a very important stop off spot for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for the affluent and prosperous of London and the hotel by the river became the hang-out of well known playboys of the day. After the coming of the railway the town grew very quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, to become a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its ideal location on the M4/A4 helps it be a major commercial centre for the region. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to The City and other major towns in the region, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and employs many people in such industries as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is widely known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) who play at York Road recognized as one of the oldest football pitches on the planet. Maidenhead United were established in 1870 & were one of the original 15 teams in the very first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
