Considering it’s only an hour or so out of London, Maldon is surprisingly under the radar. A small Essex town with no train station, it’s trickier to reach than Chelmsford and Colchester – and all the better for it. Beside the Blackwater Estuary, Maldon has a history that’s bound up with water. It’s best-known as the home of Maldon Sea Salt, while the town’s port has a heritage that stretches back thousands of years.
