Maidenhead - An ancient town with a history harping back to early Anglo-Saxon times, Maidenhead is situated in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead around 40 kilometres from central London. The town has got a resident population of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants and lies beside the River Thames. It is a major 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a pleasant site for checking out the lovely nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge as well as a wonderful railway bridge erected in eighteen thirty eight by the clever engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the subject of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous & beauty spot. Found to the west of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the well known brewers twelve Shire horses can be viewed, plus a presentation on the heritage of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself are almshouses dating from sixteen fifty nine. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden stands high above in neighbouring Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the the Thames during Saxon times. The famed bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial bridge of wood construction, first built in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it & it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the constructing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be an important stop off point for travellers on the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train service arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the river designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for the wealthy and rich of London and the hotel adjacent to the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. Soon after the coming of the railway line the town grew pretty quickly and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray & Cookham, becoming a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the middle of 'communter country' & its ideal location on the M4/A4 makes it an important commercial centre for the region. While many travel from Maidenhead to The City and additional significant towns in the region, Maidenhead itself has some light industry & provides jobs for many workers in such industrial sectors as computer software, pharmaceuticals & plastics.

Maidenhead United were formed in eighteen seventy and were one of the first fifteen entrants in the very first F.A. Cup tournament held in 1871-72.
