Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past harping back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead about 40km from London's centre. It has a resident population of about seventy eight thousand occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a great area for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a splendid railway bridge fabricated in the mid-1800's by the fantastic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also known for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating assembly point and beauty spot. West of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the renowned brewers 12 Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the historic past of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from as far back as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The well known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the river in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it and this is from where the town is thought to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a key resting place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.
