Maldon Society Lecture on the History of the Maldon Railway

A lecture on the history of the Victorian railway and its uses will be held in Maldon.

The Maldon Society has organized the next lecture hosted by Adrian Wright titled By Train to the Seaside terminating at Maldon East Station.

Adrian will reminisce about the history of the old railway and look at old photos and posters from its active days.

A spokesperson for the Maldon Society said: “The development of the Victorian railway made possible the mass migration to English seaside resorts such as Walton, Clacton and Maldon each summer.

“The lecture will be supported by photographic evidence, including nostalgic views of steam-era holiday trains and the colorful posters that adorned the station, enticing families to vacation at rail-served stations.”
