Maidenhead Area Code: 01628
Maidenhead is a large town located West of London in Berkshire. It is the latest town in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead with a population of around 73,000. The town has historical links to the Roman Empire and evidence has been found of a Roman road running through what is now the town centre, although the exact route hasn’t been identified.
Despite having a rich history dating back to Roman and Saxon times, not much of this architectural heritage remains to this day with very few distinct buildings or structures in the town. Maidenhead has been described as a clone town by some and this has led to redevelopment plans including new transport links and entertainment facilities. Maidenhead is a commuter town with links to the Silicon Corridor which runs along the M4 west of London.
