Maldon (Port Code:GBMAL) is located at the head of the River Blackwater on the east coast of England. Maldon is a small port possessing just 2 berths, both of which are privately owned. The port accommodates very small coastal vessels. The port is actively being promoted by Maldon District Council to help relieve the congestion on the roadways of the southeast. Grain is the main cargo handled.
One use of Maldon's harbour was for exporting wool, but it may be that sea-coal and dairy foods were among the more important local products. During the last hundred years, the importance of Hythe Quay as a place of trade for cargo carrying vessels has gradually been eroded. Apart from a number of renovated Thames sailing barges, the harbour is used mainly by leisure craft, with the occasional inshore fisherman. The Maldon Harbour Improvement Commissioners can levy dues from shipping to support maintenance of the river. The Commissioners provide and maintain eleven navigation buoys, five of which are lit.
