Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past harping back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berks (Berkshire) in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately forty kilometres from London's centre. The town of Maidenhead has a populace of close to 78,000 occupants and stands on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb for London, but it is a great centre for discovering the interesting nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a stunning railway bridge built in eighteen thirty eight by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the subject of Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely known brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, along with a presentation on the historical past of those horses. In the town itself you will find almshouses dating from the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the River Thames in the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the river was built in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is where the town is considered to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishment of this first bridge, Maidenhead slowly became a key resting place for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.

In the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for the prosperous and rich of London and the hotel adjacent to the river came to be the haunt of notorious playboys of the day.
