Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past stretching back to far off Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 40km from the City of London. It has a resident population of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants & lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of London, yet is a pleasant centre for discovering the beautiful nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge in addition to a superb railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also famous for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you can find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the historical past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved by the river during the times of the Saxons. The famed bridge across the Thames was erected in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf next to it and it is from this that the town is thought to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into a very important resting place for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived at Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the river designed by the amazing Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead became a very popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and rich and the hotel by the riverbank became the haunt of famous playboys of the time. Following the coming of the railway Maidenhead grew very quickly & in 1894 it separated from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Current day Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its ideal location on the A4/ M4 makes it a fundamental commercial centre for the region. Even though many travel from Maidenhead to Central london and other large towns in the region, the town itself has a certain amount of light industry & employs many in such fields as plastics, computer software & pharmaceuticals.
