Maidenhead - A historical town with a historic past harping back to far off Saxon days, Maidenhead lies in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, in the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead approximately 40 km from the centre of London. It has a resident population of around 78,000 inhabitants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. It is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a decent centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge and a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the extraordinary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the subject of Joseph Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition renowned for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of the town is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely known brewery's Shire horses can be viewed, plus a presentation on the background of those horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public park, and the mill later became a hotel. The well known house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in nearby Taplow.

The Story of Maidenhead: The original settlement of Maidenhythe grew up around the the River Thames during Anglo-Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it and it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead developed into a very important stop off point for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.
