Introduction Maidenhead is a town in Berkshire, England, located on the River Thames about 28 miles west of London. The town has a population of around 66,000, making it the 63rd largest town in the united kingdom and one of the most populous in the south east of England. The town has a rich history stretching as far back as the Doomsday Book, but today it is best known for its connections to the car industry, finance and motorsport.

History Maidenhead first appeared in the famous Doomsday Book of 1086. The book recorded the town as 'Maideneyete' and included a description of the 24 tenants it held. The town is thought to have derived its name later on in the Danish period, with 'maiden' referring to the old English spelling of 'meadow', which was heavily present in the area, and 'heath' referring to common land or heath.

The town received its charter in 1553 and by 1618 had a population of around 500. In 1838 the 'Great Western Railway' ran its first services through Maidenhead, connecting it to London and quickly establishing the area as a commercial hub. In 1894 Maidenhead's population was estimated at 4,024, the population increased steadily throughout the 20th century and today it is approaching 70,000.

Car Industry Maidenhead is recognised as a major player in the British car industry. Ford Motor Company chose the town as the site for its first British production line in 1911. The company was established in the town for 40 years and employed thousands of people, helping to shape the town and its economy. In 1952 the automotive division of Pressed Steel moved to Ockwells Park and helped to expand the car manufacturing sector in the town.

Today the town is home to many automotive engineering companies, and the nearby trading estate on Ray Lane houses a wide range of car dealerships, auto-repair shops and other specialist engineering businesses.

As early as 1939 the iconic Silverstone racing track was under construction just 14 miles away and the first races were held at nearby 'Chertsey-Ascot' speedway strip in 1934. During the 19th century the classic car road race, the 'Thames Valley Rally', originated in Maidenhead and has now been running for more than 90 years.

Maidenhead has also been home to many successful race car drivers over the years, including the well-known Sir Stirling Moss, who raced an Austin Healey Sprite in the 1959 Tour of Britain and was born in the town in 1929.
