Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story going back to far off Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately forty km from London's centre. It has got a resident population of roughly 78,000 inhabitants and lies on the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a useful centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a fine railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore famous for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, plus a display on the historic past of those horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe started beside the the Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and this is from where the town is understood to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a critical stopping off point for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the river designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into highly popular riverside resort for London's affluent and prosperous and the hotel on the riverbank became the hang-out of famous playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, to become a town in its own right.

Contemporary Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its key spot on the M4/A4 renders it a vital commercial centre for the area.

Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the first 15 entries in the 1st F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
