Where Power and Wealth Reside

Maidenhead is the largest town in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and serves as its administrative capital.  The town is located on the west bank of the Thames, a few miles northeast of Reading. At the end of the 13th century, following construction of a wooden bridge across the river, the Great West Road to Reading, Gloucester and Bristol was re-routed to pass through Maidenhead and a new wharf was built to attract barge traffic. These developments made possible Maidenhead’s growth as a market town and a major stopping point for coaches traveling between London and Bath. Maidenhead maintained its prominence as a Victorian transport hub when the Great Western Railway arrived. New red brick buildings sprang up, the streets were paved, service industries expanded their business, and the Salvation Army’s Maidenhead Citadel Band was formed.

Contemporary Maidenhead is a well-to-do dormitory town, situated in England’s silicon corridor. Many professionals reside there and commute to Reading, Slough or London for work. The town’s residential areas are green and attractive but its High Street dates back to the 1960s and is in need of renewal. It is not much frequented by locals, who prefer to shop in nearby cities and malls. Many live in outlying villages and drive in to Maidenhead only to catch the morning train.

Maidenhead’s location on the River Thames has proven ideal for development of rowing as a sport. The Maidenhead Rowing Club organizes the Maidenhead Regatta, which is one of the testing grounds for Olympic rowing athletes, with winners often selected for the UK team. The Maidenhead Golf Club was founded in 1896 by William Henry Grenfell, 1st Baron Desborough, a British athlete, sportsman, public servant and politician who was born and lived in a small village near Maidenhead. The Club’s course is considered one of the best in the country, but its location near the Maidenhead Railway Station has led some to suggest that, in light of the increasing value of the land, a new course should be built and the land used for housing and retail shops. Football and rugby are popular team sports, and the Maidenhead Sailing Club offers a sporting activity suitable for the whole family.

The Berkshire College of Agriculture is located in Maidenhead, and the Royal Borough is home to Windsor Castle, Eton College, Legoland Windsor and Ascot Racecourse. Over the years, many notables and celebrities have made Maidenhead their home, and the current UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, serves as its MP. Maidenhead is also one of the commuter-belt towns attracting UK-born millionaires who wish to make their homes near, but not in, London, where property prices and taxes are both high. The wealth and prosperity of many residents do not necessarily translate into local economic activity, however, since they do not work and shop in the town where they live.
