Maldon Heritage Week 8th – 9th September 2018
When the National Trust’s Heritage Open Days return for their 21st year in September, here in Maldon 19 venues will be open, with talks, concerts and exhibitions in 8 of them.
Enjoy a 21st Century encounter with the current Town Mayor in her regalia in the Mayor’s Parlour in the Moot Hall. 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. Learn all about the Maldon Millennium Embroidery in the Maeldune Heritage Centre. Celebrate Maldon’s Maritime heritage aboard the Steam Tug Brent, and in a quayside exhibition charting the restoration of the yacht, Essex Melody. Maldon Little Ship Club will be hosting talks on “The Shipwright and his traditional tools” and “The Riverside – landscape, architecture and detail – an introduction” given by members of the Maldon Riverside Association. The unique steam powered Beeleigh Mill, currently under restoration will be open, together with Beeleigh Abbey Gardens where you can meet Chris Cork, the man behind the restoration of the gardens over the past 18 years and enjoy a brief lay introduction to the history of the building (note the abbey will not be open).
