The Balcony is the most striking feature of the building seen from ground level. It was erected in 1810 during a ‘beautifying restoration’ and the elegant iron balustrade was added later. The clock, mounted above the balcony, chimes every quarter hour, completing the first bars of ‘my redeemer liveth’ from Handel’s Oratoria, Messiah. The clock was the gift of George Courtauld, the Maldon Borough’s last MP.
In the summer the balcony balustrade is a blaze of floral colour that makes a beautiful setting for your guests to enjoy a drink following your Ceremony, by arrangement. It is also a perfect background for those all important pictures on your special day.
