Hello, and Welcome to Maidenhead in Pictures Photo Blog !

I’ve lived in Maidenhead since the year 2000 and lived in and around the beautiful Chilterns area all of my life.

As my children grew up in Maidenhead as I found myself taking photographs of the family around the various parks, open spaces and beautiful countryside of Maidenhead, and it struck me that it would be great to show off the best parts of Maidenhead in a Photo Blog.

I have tried to capture to essence and history of Maidenhead, showing off some of the great, and maybe not so well known parts.

I hope you enjoy looking at the posts as much as I have in taking the pictures. As time goes by and the town evolves, there is always something new to photograph.

If you have any particular places that you would like to be included please get in touch with us.

Thanks again for stopping by Maidenhead in Pictures !
