Maldon is a small town of about 15,500 people in Essex on the Blackwater estuary.
We have a knack of visiting the coast at low tide but scenes such as this sailing vessel aground on the mud can be interesting.
A general view of the waterfront with Thames barges and beyond them a large number of yachts.

Maldon Quay, steam tug, Thames barges and plenty of yachts.
The steam tug Brent and the banner that tells you all about her.
