Maidenhead - A historical town with a history going back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly forty km from London's centre. The town of Maidenhead has got a population of roughly seventy eight thousand inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but is a great venue for exploring the excellent nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge and also a wonderful railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the incredible engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, plus a presentation on the story of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe grew up beside the river in Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is from where the town is considered to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishment of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead developed into a critical stop off place for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the 19th Century Maidenhead evolved into popular riverside destination for London's affluent & wealthy & the hotel by the river came to be the haunt of famous playboys of the time. After the coming of the railway the town grew rapidly and in 1894 it split from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, developing into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its key spot on the M4/A4 makes it an important centre for the region. Although many commute from Maidenhead to London and various other large towns in the region, the town itself has a bit of light industry & provides jobs for many people in such industries as plastics, computer software and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead is well known for its soccer team Maidenhead United (nicknamed the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest grounds on the planet. Maidenhead United were established in 1870 & were one of the first fifteen entrants in the very first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
