Maidenhead - An old town with a history harping back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40km from the centre of London. Maidenhead has a populace of about seventy eight thousand inhabitants and stands on the River Thames. It is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a good centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a fine railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition famous for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewers Shire horses can be seen, along with a display on the heritage of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill is now a hotel. The well known National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & this is from where the town is understood to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead came to be a major resting place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was constructed over the River Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's prosperous and affluent and the hotel alongside the riverbank became the hang-out of well known playboys of that time. After the coming of the railway service the town expanded fairly quickly and in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.
