Maidenhead - An ancient town with a historic past harping back to far off Anglo-Saxon days, Maidenhead is located in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead roughly forty km from central London. It has got a resident population of close to seventy eight thousand inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a good area for exploring the nearby countryside. The River Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge & also a superb railway bridge constructed in the mid-nineteenth century by the reputable engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore famous for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the well known brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, with a display on the heritage of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an intriguing collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill later became a hotel. The widley known house of Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The original settlement of Maiden Hythe started around the river during the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf built beside it & this is where the town is believed to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this first bridge, Maidenhead got to be an important stopping off point for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train line found its way to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames to a design by the incredible Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead became a highly popular riverside destination for London's prosperous and rich & the hotel by the riverbank became the hang-out of famous playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway service the town expanded pretty quickly and in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Bray and Cookham, developing into a town in its own right.
