Leech Memorial Garden
Maldon Town Council, with the help of the Friends Group, maintain this beautiful public open space, which is located on the edge of town.

The garden was once the pride and joy of two local sisters, called Edna and Joan Leech who lived opposite, at 14 Lodge Road. Sadly both sisters were killed in an air crash in 1971, and the garden was left to the people of Maldon in their will.

The Friends Group came together in 2006. The group meet once a month and their work helps supplement that of the Town Councils Contractor. Among our general tasks are cutting out brambles, lighter pruning, weeding, and  planting in order to enhance the  beauty of the garden. 

*If you are interested in volunteering during one of the work days, please contact Councillor Flo Shaughnessy.


 Market Hill Garden
In recent years this garden has been transformed from a once neglected demolition site into peaceful oasis, nestled on the busy Market Hill. The garden is a beautiful floral gateway into the heart of town, and it provides a much needed breathing space for those struggling up the hill.
