The Hythe, Maldon, Essex Giclée Travel Poster
Giclée travel poster of Hythe Quay in Maldon, Essex. Sitting where River Chelmer and the Blackwater Estuary meet, the Hythe was a regular port of call for Thames Barges during its 19th cenutry heyday, shipping farm produce up the Thames to London, and manure down the Thames to local farms. In the background of this illustration you can see St. Mary's Church, which has occupied that site for over a thousand years.
Today, the Hythe is a flourishing area of Maldon, and a popular destination for both locals and visitors from across Essex. Hythe Quay, no longer a cargo port, is now home to a range of pleasure craft, often used for sight-seeing trips out into the Blackwater Estuary and beyond. Two pubs - the Jolly Sailor and the Queen's Head - are at the Hythe, as are the Barge Tearooms and boat trips.
