The Maldon Penny School

The Penny School situated on Church Street Maldon is one of our favourite buildings in town.

Maldon Penny School

The school was called the Penny School because that was the cost of attendance at the school.

The 1856 Penny School, built of stone, brick and weatherboard as the Church of England Denominational School No.413, overlooks Maldon in Church Street. It was acquired by the National Trust in 1979. It was sold by The National Trust to a private buyer in 2014.

Maldon is always a lovely town. However Autumn and Spring bring out a vibrant colour not seen at other times of the year.

This photo is taken from the top of Main Street looking up toward the ruins of the Beehive Gold Mine.

This tower was originally a mine poppet head and was transported to Maldon as a lookout tower.

It now serves as both a tourist attraction, public lookout and fire lookout on the top of the tower.
