Maldon and the Essex Coast

Maldon is one of the oldest recorded towns in Essex. It's a place rich in heritage, maritime history and rural charm.
 
With over 60 miles of coastline, Maldon retains a special character forged over the centuries by the Districts three rivers and the North Sea. The town's links with the River Chelmer and Blackwater Estuary remain important, and Thames sailing barges can still be spotted at the quayside.
 
Nearby Burnham-on-Crouch nestles amid the unspoilt Dengie Marshes. Traditional weather-boarded cottages blend in with new buildings to create a picturesque town popular with yachtsmen.
 
Sea Salt (favoured by famous chefs) is still harvested from the Blackwater. Other traditional industries such as barge repairing, boat building, sail making and oyster fishing still thrive and grain is still delivered by boat at Fullbridge Quay.
 
The estuaries are internationally recognised for their wildlife. Many opportunities exist for bird watchers, artists and walkers to explore the coast and countryside via an extensive network of footpaths.
