Maidenhead - A historic town with a historical past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 mls from central London. It has a populace of close to seventy eight thousand occupants and sits on the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of London, though is still a good site for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a superb railway bridge fabricated in eighteen thirty eight by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition famous for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely known brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, as well as a presentation on the history of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can see almshouses dating from as long ago as sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe evolved around the the River Thames during Saxon times. The well known bridge across the Thames was constructed in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & this is from where the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a very important stopping place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.
