Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past going back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in Berkshire (Berks) county in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately forty kilometres from the centre of London. It has a population of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants and sits on the River Thames. It is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a good locality for exploring the excellent nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge and a stunning railway bridge designed in eighteen thirty eight by the excellent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is additionally noted for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, accompanied by a display on the history of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as far back as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, & the mill is now a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the river in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The former settlement of Maidenhythe evolved beside the the River Thames in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & it is from this that the town is understood to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be a crucial stopping off point for travellers making the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for the rich & wealthy of London & the hotel beside the riverbank came to be the hang-out of famous playboys of the time. After the arrival of the railway line Maidenhead grew very quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, becoming a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its handy setting on the M4/A4 renders it a major commercial centre for the region. While a great many commute from Maidenhead to Central london & various other major towns in the region, the town itself has a smattering of light industry and employs many in such fields as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.
