Married in Maldon - at The Moot Hall

Maldon’s MOOT HALL has stood in the centre of the town for nearly 600 yearsand is probably one of the oldest brick buildings in Essex. Originally it was built in the mid 15thC as part of the family manor house of Sir Robert D’Arcy. In 1576 the tower was acquired by the town for use as the centre of local government until 1974. Holding civil ceremonies has opened a new chapter in the story of the MOOT HALL.
