    Heritage Church

    Maldon is made for walking around, even on a winters day. Rug up and enjoy.

    When you arrive to Maldon head to the Vistors Information Centre and grab a Town Walk map. There are 46 places of interest on this map. Churches/Houses/Schools/Stores/ picket fences/stone gutters/windows and roofs.....wow...so much.

    The walk will take about 45 minutes, that is if you don't stop and have a coffee:)

    Maldon Marbles

    by Kate-Me Written May 17, 2003
    Maldon Marbles house

    The Maldon marbles are classical sculptures of ancient Greek gods and the like - mythological scenes, fashioned from Italian marble.
    The artist, Michel Dubey, is originally from Switzerland and has had his studio here in Maldon for 7 years or more.
    The building housing the sculptures (and which is also the home of the artist) was built in 1862, and has been substantially restored.
    Really a must see. This work is so fantastic, and amazing to be found in such a small, off the beaten track town. I believe this work could be famous anywhere, and people living in major cities would pay to see it, yet the artist obviously loves living in Maldon.

    Visit the Gnome Factory

    by Kate-Me Updated May 17, 2003
    Gnome factory

    This little cottage may look a little ramshackle, but it's actually rather quirky and interesting, and I enjoyed it quite a lot.
    In the 'workshop' area of the barn and outside are displays of the terracotta/unglazed pottery items and ornaments which are made.
    Entry price to the 'Gnome Garden' is posted as "A Smile". It's just a little area scattered with trees but there are gnomes and figures everywhere in particular groupings - such as Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Last time I was there they also had some nice rabbits and a few other small animals in hutches.

    This gives an idea of the calibre of Michel's work. This was one of my favourites - the hand just seems to come right out of the Carrara marble carving.
