Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story going back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in Berkshire county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty kilometers from the City of London. The town has got a population of around 78,000 and lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a nice centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge along with a wonderful railway bridge designed in 1838 by the remarkable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also famous for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating meeting place and beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the famous brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, plus a presentation on the historic past of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe developed around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The well known bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built next to it and this is where the town is considered to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the construction of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a major stopping off place for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived at 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 developed into very popular riverside resort for London's rich and wealthy and the hotel by the Thames came to be the haunt of notorious playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew fairly quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its handy location on the A4/ M4 renders it a fundamental centre for the area.
