The historic Moot Hall in Maldon is a Grade One listed building in the heart of this historic maritime Town. The building has many unique architectural features and has, in the last couple of Years, been extensively renovated by English Heritage.
Although it is one of the 364 Grade One and Two listed buildings and artefacts in the Town, it has occupied a central role in Maldon’s local government for over 400 Years. After the reorganisation of Local Government in the 1970s, the Moot Hall continued to be used on ceremonial occasions and meetings by the new Town Council until the purpose built Maldon Town Hall was opened in Market Hill, Maldon.
The Friends of the Moot Hall has been set-up to manage the future use of the Moot Hall as a living museum, linking the building to the social history of Maldon across the Centuries.
