Maidenhead - A historical town with a historic past stretching back to far off Saxon periods, Maidenhead can be found in Berks (Berkshire) county in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead roughly 40km from the centre of London. It has got a populace of approximately seventy eight thousand occupants and stands on the River Thames. Maidenhead is a significant 'dormitory' suburb for London, & yet is still a nice centre for exploring the charming nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is spanned by an 18th century road bridge & also a splendid railway bridge constructed in the mid-1800's by the extraordinary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the popular brewers twelve Shire horses can be seen, together with a display on the history of those horses. In Maidenhead town itself you can view almshouses dating from 1659. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The celebrated Italianate mansion Cliveden looks down on the river in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up beside the the River Thames in Saxon times. The famous bridge across the Thames was made in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first built in 1255 had a wharf built next to it and it is from this that the town is thought to have been named (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead started to be a valuable stopping off point for travellers making the journey from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway service came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a railway bridge was constructed over the River Thames designed by the exceptional Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead evolved into highly popular riverside resort for London's affluent and prosperous and the hotel adjacent to the Thames became the haunt of notorious playboys of that time. After the arrival of the railway Maidenhead expanded quickly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.
