Maidenhead - An old town with a historic past stretching back to early Anglo-Saxon periods, Maidenhead is situated in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead about 25 miles from central London. It has got a resident population of around seventy eight thousand inhabitants and lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a good sized 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a good centre for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is crossed by an eighteenth century road bridge and a terrific railway bridge erected in the mid-nineteenth century by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the setting for Joseph Mallord Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is furthermore known for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating assembly point and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewers Shire horses can be seen, plus a presentation on the background of the horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can find almshouses dating from as long ago as the 17th century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a fascinating collection of paintings, sculpture, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden looks down on the Thames in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maidenhythe developed beside the river in the days of the Saxons. The well known bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf beside it and this is where the town is understood to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a crucial stop off point for travellers taking the route from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a rail bridge was constructed over the river designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside destination for London's prosperous & affluent and the hotel adjacent to the riverbank came to be the hang-out of notorious playboys of that time. Soon after the arrival of the railway Maidenhead expanded rather quickly & in 1894 it broke up from the parishes of Cookham and Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' and its handy spot on the M4/A4 helps it be an important commercial centre for the region.
