Hotels in Maldon
The home of Maldon Sea Salt, Maldon is a pictorial Essex community that was the site of a noSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION 10th-century battle. This ancient town, which overlooks the scenic Blackwater estuary, is also well known for the Hythe, an area containing numerous barges that once distributed enormous amounts of straw to horses in London.
Since the 1880s, Maldon Sea Salt has been harvested by filtering and boiling North Sea water before heating it to crystallise the salt, a technique that can only be achieved at a specific temperature and time frame.
The Battle of Maldon
In 991 AD, the Battle of Maldon was fought between Viking and Anglo-Saxon forces, and resulted in a clear defeat for the latter. Today, the event is commemorated with the striking Byrhtnoth statue, which is probably the most recognisable monument in Maldon and was pioneered by the successful sculptor and painter John Doubleday.
St Mary's Church
Locally nicknamed the 'fisherman's church', St Mary's Church dates back to the early-12th century and replaced an older Saxon church that may have been destroyed in the Battle of Maldon. The building has been partly remodelled on several occasions, and received an additional glass window in 1991 to mark the 1,000th anniversary of the pivotal battle.
A major event in Maldon's calendar is the Taxi Day, where disabled children from the capital are given the opportunity to take part in various themed activities, and are driven to the town in London Black Cabs. The Maldon Festival, meanwhile, takes place each summer, and includes special readings and live music performances comprising jazz and classical music.
