Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historical past going back to early Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead can be found in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 miles from central London. The town of Maidenhead has a population of around 78,000 inhabitants and stands on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, however is still a good centre for exploring the lovely nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an 18th century road bridge plus a terrific railway bridge erected in the mid-nineteenth century by the magnificent engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewery's twelve Shire horses can be viewed, together with a display on the historical past of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you will find almshouses dating from as far back as the mid-17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a noteworthy collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The widley known Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The first settlement of Maidenhythe evolved around the river during Saxon times. The well known bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & it is from this that the town is believed to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a very important resting place for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.
