The town of Maidenhead has a population of around seventy eight thousand & sits on the River Thames.

The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge as well as a magnificent railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the excellent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating meeting place & beauty spot.

The celebrated bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is deemed to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe').
