Located in the county of Berkshire, Maidenhead is a town with 79,000 residents. West of London, north east of Reading and south east of Oxford, it is paired with Saint Cloud in France, Bad Godesberg in Germany and Frascati in Italy.
Situated on the River Thames, Maidenhead came to prominence during the Medieval period thanks to the construction of a bridge over the river. This meant a great deal of ‘traffic’ passed through the town, and it was an important stop off point on the stage coach route from London to Bath.
These days it’s part of the Silicon Corridor along the M4, and as such is home to numerous high tech industries like telecommunications, computer software development and even pharmaceuticals. However even with such modernity all around it, the town still hangs onto its historic roots.
Sport plays an important role in the town, and it’s actually a centre for rowing, with annual regattas taking place on the Thames. Maidenhead United football club is based at the York Road ground, which is among the oldest in the world.
