Celebrating a thousand years of Maldon history
"Maeldune" is the Saxon spelling of Maldon and means "a meeting Place on the hill often marked by a cross". The Centre is run by the Maeldune Trust in partnership with Maldon Town Council and admission is free. The centre is home to the Maldon Embroidery, a 42' long masterpiece which was created to celebrate 1000 years of Maldon's history from the battle of Maldon in 991 to its unveiling in 1991. It also contains an art gallery, gift shop selling art and craft items made by local artists and has many fascinating items on display collected from local archaeological digs.
We offer talks about the embroidery to groups for a small fee. Visits can be arranged outside our opening hours if required. All talks must be booked at least a month in advance.
