Maidenhead - A historical town with a story harping back to early Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around forty km from the centre of London. Maidenhead has a resident population of around 78,000 inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a substantial 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a great area for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge as well as a fine railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore known for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating assembly point & beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, along with a presentation on the the historical past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an interesting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The acclaimed Italianate mansion Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up by the the Thames in Anglo-Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it & this is from where the town is considered to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a very important resting place for travellers on the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was erected over the river designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside destination for London's rich and wealthy & the hotel beside the river came to be the haunt of famous playboys of the time. Soon after the coming of the railway line the town expanded pretty quickly and in 1894 it split up 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 ideal location on the M4/A4 helps it be a major commercial centre for the region. Even though many commute from Maidenhead to London & various other significant towns in the region, the town itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and provides jobs for many in such sectors as computer software, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is famous for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) who play at York Road one of the oldest football pitches around the world. Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy and were one of the original fifteen entries in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
