It’s Summertime at The Maeldune Heritage Centre!
Continuing our Summer Programme of Exhibitions, our latest exhibition is by The Salcott Art Group (3rd – 22nd August) for their second Exhibition at the Maeldune. This is a fresh, mixed display of work by this very gifted local Art Group, some of whom are exhibiting for the very first time! A new direction for them this year will be a range of attractive greetings cards.
New Displays - we are delighted to be partnering with two local sister Heritage venues – the Maldon Museum – ‘The Museum in the Park’ and Burnham-on-Crouch and District Museum.

We now have two new displays. The history of the iconic Thames Sailing Barges, for which Maldon and its maritime heritage is so justly celebrated, is presented courtesy of the Maldon Museum and features a wonderful model barge and artefacts relating to their construction and history. And examples of locally found Fossils and the story of salt making, courtesy of the Burnham Museum.
And – just arrived, our new display featuring 100 years of the Maldon and Burnham Carnivals – a lovely nostalgic trip down Memory Lane!
Our own beautiful model Sailing Barge is now taking pride of place in our window – it is the ‘Northdown’ made by D.T Parry.
During your visit, you can also enjoy the beautiful Maldon Embroidery – which celebrates and portrays in vivid and colourful detail 1000 years of Maldon’s eventful life, starting from the famous Battle of Maldon in 991.
Also - our Craft Gift Shop is full of lovely things, made by local artists and makers, and our regular displays continue from The Maldon Society Archive.
We are a registered Charity and every purchase and donation you make, helps us to continue our work in promoting our local Heritage and encouraging the work of our local Artists and Craftspeople.
