Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past harping back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 25 miles from London's centre. It has a resident population of about seventy eight thousand occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of London, however is still a pleasant locale for exploring the gorgeous nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is traversed by an 18th century road bridge along with a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point & beauty spot. Found to the west of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, along with a display on the history of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill later became a hotel. The renowned National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the river during Saxon times. The well known bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead became a vital resting place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was built over the Thames to a design by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's affluent & wealthy and the hotel beside the Thames became the hang-out of well known playboys of the day. Following the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead expanded swiftly and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, to become a town in its own right.
