Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in Berks county in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around 40 km from the centre of London. Maidenhead has got a population of close to 78,000 inhabitants and rests on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb for London, but is a pleasant venue for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating rendezvous & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the famous brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, accompanied by a presentation on the historic past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from as long ago as the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a great collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The celebrated National Trust run Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maidenhythe started around the the River Thames in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the River Thames was erected in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is from where the town is thought to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into a very important stopping off place for travellers on 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 built over the River Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for the prosperous and affluent of London and the hotel adjacent to the Thames became the haunt of famous playboys of those times. Following the coming of the railway service Maidenhead expanded rapidly and in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, turning into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' & its key location on the A4/ M4 makes it a key commercial centre for the area. While a good many commute from Maidenhead to London & various other big towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a certain amount of light industry & employs many in such industries as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is famous for its soccer team Maidenhead United (referred to as the Magpies) which plays at York Rd claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches in the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the original fifteen entries in the first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
