Maldon is a town found on the Blackwater Estuary within the ceremonial county of Essex, in the south of England. The town is situated close to the bounds of Greater London and is also near to the settlements of Burnham on Crouch, Chelmsford and Heybridge.
The History Of Maldon
The first written reference to a settlement with the name of Maldon, then recorded as Maeldun, comes from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 913 AD. This version of the name gives some clues as to the etymological origins of the moniker. This is the case as in Old English Mael meant ‘monument’ and dun meant ‘hill’. Therefore, the settlement’s name can be translated as meaning ‘the monument on the hill’.
In more recent years, Maldon is also well known for being one of the proposed sites for a potential French invasion of England in 1744. Fortunately for the town and for England in general, however, the French fleet was wrecked by storms before it reached the English coast.
Modern Day Maldon
Today, Maldon is a moderately sized settlement which, according to the latest available census data, is home to around 21,500 permanent residents. What this means is that the settlement is not the busiest or most densely populated in the country, but it is certainly busy enough that it can be the source of a considerable number of accidents and injuries. It is for that reason, therefore, that it is pertinent to now turn our attention to the issues surrounding Maldon compensation claims.
