Introducing the Maeldune’s New Manager!


We are thrilled to announce the appointment of our new Manager, Lynda O’Brien!


Lynda joined the team of Volunteers at the Maeldune Heritage Centre in 2018, following her retirement from working for the legal department of a local authority.


Lynda has always believed in the important contribution Volunteers make and quickly became a valued member of the Maeldune Volunteer team, including being one of the team working on the memorable and poignant Danger Tree WW1 exhibition at the Centre and the Moot Hall last Autumn.  







Lynda has a keen interest in heritage and local history and is really looking forward to working with the Maeldune’s team of Trustees, Staff and Volunteers in continuing to raise awareness of local heritage and history for both local people and visitors to Maldon, whilst at the same time, providing a valuable opportunity for our wonderful and talented local craftspeople, makers and artists to showcase their work.  Lynda’s mission is to make the Centre even more of a vibrant and welcoming hub of history and creativity, in the centre of Maldon, in the future.


There is much to enjoy at the Maeldune this Spring  ….Our first Exhibition of 2019 is by The Maldon Camera Club, for their second showing at the Maeldune; a wonderful variety of photographic images. This exhibition opened to the public on Thursday 14th February and runs until Tuesday 26th March.


Also the installation of the Oral History Listening Station, organised by The Maldon Society. This provides a fascinating and rare opportunity to hear local real life stories, told by the people themselves – do come and try it for yourself!


And our Craft Gift Shop is full of lovely, craft items from our wonderful local craftspeople and our Museum displays continue from the Maldon and Burnham on Crouch museums, featuring a new display of found clay pipes.


We are FREE to enter, and open Tuesday-Saturday, 11-4 throughout the year.
