Celebrating Maldon’s Heritage

 

92 venues were open across Essex in a celebration of the county’s history, as the National Trust’s Heritage Open Days returned for their 20th year.

Here in Maldon, 19 venues and events were staged, ranging from a 16th Century encounter with Queen Elizabeth I and her courtiers in the Moot Hall, to a 21st Century encounter with the current Town Mayor in her full regalia. All Saints Church resounded to the sound of hand bell and tower bell ringing, whilst trying your hand at making your own beeswax candles in the churchyard. Visitors could explore the remains of a medieval leper hospital at St Giles in Spital Road, which is not usually open to the public,  and enjoy some peace and quiet exploring the tranquil grounds of the Leech Memorial Gardens in Lodge Road. Talks were given about the Maldon Millennium Embroidery in the Maeldune Heritage Centre, and local Maldon characters were celebrated in talks about Edward Bright, the Fat Man at Maldon, and Earl Brythnoth, hero of the Battle of Maldon in 991. There were guided walks along both the river, and around the town centre, highlighting Maldon’s association with War, and an Ale Trail of the town’s hostelries throughout the centuries. Maldon’s Maritime heritage was celebrated on the Steam Tug Brent, and in talks hosted by Maldon Little Ship Club. Also open was the unique steam powered Beeleigh Mill,  the Museum in the Park, the Quaker Meeting House in Butt Lane and the Masonic Hall on Cromwell Hill.
