Maidenhead - An old town with a history going back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 kilometers from central London. It has got a population of approximately 78,000 occupants & stands on the River Thames. It is a major 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a useful region for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a stunning railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore known for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a display on the history of those horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The initial settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the river during the times of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was erected in around 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & this is where the town is considered to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to be a very important resting place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was constructed over the River Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for the affluent & wealthy of London and the hotel alongside the river came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of those times. Following the arrival of the railway service the town expanded pretty quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Today's Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key setting on the M4/A4 renders it an important commercial centre for the area. Although many commute from Maidenhead to London and additional large towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has a bit of light industry & employs many people in such fields as pharmaceuticals, computer software and plastics.

Maidenhead is widely known for its football team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Rd claimed to be one of the oldest football grounds on the planet. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the original fifteen entrants in the 1st F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
