Maidenhead - A historic town with a history stretching back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is located in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 40 kilometres from London's centre. The town has got a population of roughly 78,000 & rests on the banks of the River Thames. It is a significant 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a great centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge and also a stunning railway bridge built in 1838 by the excellent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous & 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 viewed, together with a display on the heritage of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill later became a hotel. The famous National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe developed beside the the River Thames in the times of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the River Thames was erected in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf beside it & it is from this that the town is supposed to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the constructing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a crucial resting place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.
