Maidenhead - An ancient town with a story harping back to early Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berks in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead approximately 40 km from the centre of London. It has a population of roughly seventy eight thousand and lies beside the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of London, and yet is still a great place for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is crossed by an 18th century road bridge together with a superb railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the distinguished engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point & beauty spot. West of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, together with a presentation on the story of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The famed house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historical Past of Maidenhead: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved beside the river during Saxon times. The famed bridge across the river was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and this is from where the town is deemed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be an excellent stopping off point for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - - 205285The railway line came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was erected over the River Thames designed by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the 19th Century Maidenhead became a popular riverside resort for London's rich and wealthy & the hotel on the Thames came to be the hang-out of famous playboys of that time. Following the coming of the railway line the town grew fairly quickly & in 1894 it split from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Twenty-first century Maidenhead is in the midst of 'communter country' & its key location on the M4/A4 renders it a major centre for the area. Although many travel from Maidenhead to Central london and additional large towns in the area, Maidenhead itself has a reasonable amount of light industry and provides jobs for many people in such fields as computer software, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 & were one of the original fifteen entrants in the first F.A. Cup competition which took place in 1871-72.
