Maldon Prom

We took a little walk around the Maldon prom a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a few pictures:

This is where they have the Maldon mud race.

More boats.

HSE haven’t found this yet.

View back towards Maldon from the prom.

The prom lake, which used to be a swimming lake that thousands visited every summer until some berk dived in (ignoring the presence of ‘No Diving ‘ signs), smacked his head on a post and died. Subsequent involvement of the HSE and a compensation claim closed the lake to swimming. Congratulation all round. 

The statue of Byrhtnoth a 10th century leader under Ethelred whose claim to fame is getting spanked by the Vikings. Erected in honour of council leaders who were wondering how next to blow a silly amount of money.

Steam boat.

Him again.
I needed chips. It was bloody cold.
