Maldon is at the head of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex. It is one of the oldest towns in the area, most noted for the epic Battle of Maldon in 991AD when the Vikings defeated the Saxons. The English Heritage site of the battlefield area is part of the Coastal Protection Belt. Maldon grew as a town based on specialist trading, mainly for the London markets. The famous Maldon Crystal Sea Salt is made using crystals harvested along the beds of the River Blackwater. The High Street is the centre of commerce, with small lanes running off it. The shops and restaurants compliment the market held on Thursdays and Saturdays. The Moot Hall on the High Street is an interesting 15th century building housing the remains of an old gaol. Maldon is a lively community with frequent events, including the charitable Maldon mud race which every new year's day sees the competitors race across the Blackwater estuary and back at low tide. There are two islands in the estuary, Northey Island, owned by the National Trust, and Osea Island which is a private estate. Northey Island, said to be a base for the Viking army in 991, can be visited only with prior permission. The town’s other attractions include Maeldune Heritage Centre on Market Hill, housing the 42 foot Maldon embroidery, celebrating the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Maldon. Millennium Garden, also on Market Hill, was also created to mark the 1991 celebrations of the battle. Promenade Park is an Edwardian park with river views, tennis, mini-golf, and a model boating lake. Maldon District Museum is set in Promenade Park, and has exhibits showing local history. Hythe Quay, next to Promenade Park, is part of the old port of Maldon where the Thames Sailing Barges are moored, now used for boat trips or chartering.
