Maidenhead Bridge
Maidenhead Bridge
The bridge carries the A4 Bath Road over the River Thames. It was designed by the architect Robert Taylor and built at a cost of 19,000 in 1777. It was a toll bridge until 1903, when motorists decided they were no longer prepared to pay and threw the gates into the river. The bridge has 12 arches of which the middle 6 are over the water, with the middle two navigable. The first bridge over the river here was built out of wood in 1280. The centre of the small metal plaque on the near abutment records the maximum water level reached during the November 1894 flood event.
