The Maeldune Heritage Centre opens again on 12th February!


Deborah Rhodes writes:  you may have heard that I am retiring from the Maeldune after three amazing years as Manager, having started as a Volunteer in 2014.  I have really enjoyed my time here and I have met some amazing people.  I would like to thank the on-site team, Staff and Volunteers, for all their support.  Also our Chairman and Trustees (all volunteers too) who have given me so much support and encouragement.  We are now recruiting a new Manager, who will be starting soon, and will be carrying on the good work.


2018 was a fantastic year for the Maeldune!  Highlights included the wonderful and moving WW1Danger Tree Exhibition, a visit from BBC Radio Essex’s ‘Quest’ treasure hunt programme and a visit from BBC Children in Need with Pudsey!  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!


After our annual Winter ‘wash-and-brush-up’ we opened our doors again on 12th February,  And we are delighted to present our first Exhibition of the year – The Maldon Camera Club, for their second showing at the Maeldune; a wonderful variety of photographic images for you to enjoy and get 2019 off to a great start!  This exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 14th February and runs until Tuesday 5th March.


Also - our Craft Gift Shop is full of lovely, fresh new craft items from our wonderful local craftspeople (just in time for those Valentine’s presents!) and our Museum displays continue from the Maldon and Burnham on Crouch museums.


We are FREE to enter, and open Tuesday-Saturday, 11-4.  We look forward to seeing you soon and starting Spring in style!
