Maidenhead - A historic town with a historic past going back to early Saxon times, Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire (Berks) in the Home Counties, within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty km from London's centre. It has got a population of roughly 78,000 & lies on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, & yet is still a decent centre for checking out the excellent nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a stunning railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the superb engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the setting of Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is in addition famous for Boulter's Lock, a well known boating meeting place and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the widely known brewers 12 Shire horses can be viewed, plus a display on the historical past of those horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, glassware & pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill was later turned into a hotel. The widley known house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The first settlement of Maiden Hythe started around the the River Thames in the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The famed bridge across the River Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial bridge of wood construction, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it and this is where the town is believed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Following the establishing of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead came to be a significant stopping off point for travellers making the route from London to Bath.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The railway came to Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) and a rail bridge was erected over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Through the 19th Century Maidenhead developed into popular riverside destination for London's wealthy and affluent & the hotel by the riverbank became the hang-out of famous playboys of that time. Soon after the arrival of the railway the town grew dramatically & in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, transforming into a town in its own right.

Present day Maidenhead is in the heart of 'communter country' & its strategic spot on the A4/ M4 helps it be a valuable town for the area. While a good many commute from Maidenhead to London & various other major towns in the region, the town itself has a bit of light industry & employs many in such industries as computer software, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

Maidenhead is respected for its football team Maidenhead United (called the Magpies) which plays at York Road claimed to be one of the oldest football pitches in the world. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the original 15 entrants in the first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
