Maidenhead - An old town with a history harping back to early Saxon periods, Maidenhead is found in the county of Berkshire in the Home Counties, within the Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead around forty kilometers from the City of London. The town has a population of around 78,000 inhabitants and rests on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a big 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, although is still a good location for exploring the pretty nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge plus a terrific railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the fabulous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the setting for J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is in addition noted for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating rendezvous and beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the popular brewery's 12 Shire horses can be seen, along with a presentation on the history of the horses. In the town itself you can view almshouses dating from mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery and glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, and the mill later became a hotel. The celebrated house of Cliveden looks down on the River Thames in neighbouring Taplow.

Maidenhead History: The original settlement of Maidenhythe evolved beside the the River Thames in the times of the Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was made in around 1777 (for around £19,000), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf next to it and this is from where the town is thought to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this 1st bridge, Maidenhead grew into an important stop off place for travellers making the journey from Bath to London.

Maidenhead Bridge and River Thames - geograph.org.uk - 205285The train arrived in Maidenhead in 1838 (Great Western Railway) & a railway bridge was constructed over the Thames to a design by the outstanding Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Over the Nineteenth Century Maidenhead developed into highly popular riverside destination for London's affluent and prosperous & the hotel adjacent to the river became the hang-out of notorious playboys of the day. Following the coming of the railway the town expanded rapidly and in 1894 it split up from the parishes of Cookham & Bray, turning into a town in its own right.

Modern day Maidenhead is in the centre of 'communter country' and its key location on the A4/ M4 helps it be a major town for the region. While many commute from Maidenhead to The city of london & various other major towns in the region, the town itself has a bit of light industry and provides jobs for many in such industries as pharmaceuticals, computer software & plastics.

Maidenhead is respected for its football team Maidenhead United (known as the Magpies) who play at York Road one of the oldest football pitches on the planet. Maidenhead United were formed in 1870 and were one of the first fifteen entries in the first F.A. Cup tournament which took place in 1871-72.
