South House Farm, Maldon.
South House Farm, Maldon.
Behind the farm is the site of the Battle of Maldon (991) as marked on OS maps. The battle was probably fought over these fields and up to the hill on which Maldon town is built. The battle was a victory for Viking invaders over the British - Danish soldiers. Behind the farm too is the causeway to Northey Island where the Vikings camped (access permission needed).
