Maldon Town - Mixing old and new in a unique way
A picturesque town nestled on the banks of the River Blackwater that is rich with history and full of life.
Whether it’s the abundance of ancient Thames Barges that line the quayside, the fantastic choice of delicious restaurants and cafés, or the thrills of the annual Mud Race, there are countless ways to enjoy life in Maldon.
Along the town’s characterful streets, you’ll find a mixture of high street favourites and independent delights. Among them there are banks, supermarkets, a post office and a variety of interesting stores that stock everything from fashion, right through to fishing tackle.
All this is perfectly balanced with a great selection of spectacular open spaces, stunning surrounding countryside and the beautiful River Blackwater when you need to blow away the cobwebs.
Where life is plain sailing
With its riverside location and such a strong maritime history, there are plenty of ways to have fun out on the water, but that’s not all Maldon has to offer.
Maldon is perhaps most famous for being the home of the Thames Barge and to this day there is a huge number of these iconic vessels moored at Hythe Quay. It is possible to arrange a sailing trip on one of the barges, but even just admiring them from the shore at high tide is worth the trip.
A short walk from Hythe Quay is the fantastic Promenade Park. When you combine its open space, marine lake, tennis courts, skate park, crazy golf, pirate ship playground and Splash Park, you have the perfect place for the whole family to enjoy a day out.
If you are more of a foodie or you just love to socialise, you will be pleased to hear that Maldon enjoys some outstanding places to eat, drink and chat. Get some proper pub grub and beer at The Queens Head, go back to basics at The Maldon Smokehouse or enjoy great coffee and brunch at the Continental Café.
Get the best start in life
Maldon is not only a great place for the family to play, it’s also a great place for them to learn. Being located within easy reach of Chelmsford and a number of other nearby towns, Limebrook Walk not only makes the most of Maldon’s offering, but also that of the surrounding area.
This means that you could be just a short drive from some of the area’s best nursery, primary, secondary and college education, rated ‘Good’ and above by Ofsted. When you are surrounded by opportunities like this, it’s hard to find a reason not to base your family at Limebrook Walk.
Limebrook Walk is ideally located to provide easy access to a number of schools and colleges in the local area, giving you the peace of mind that your family has everything they need to grow.
The wider development has plans for a new primary school to open within Limebrook Walk.
