Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is located in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly 40km from central London. The town has a populace of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants and sits on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a great place for checking out the interesting nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a stunning railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the excellent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating rendezvous & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely recognized brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, accompanied by a display on the history of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known National Trust run Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

The celebrated bridge across the river was made in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is considered to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to be a vital stop off place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.
