The historic market town of Maldon is situated on the Blackwater Estuary, approximately 14 kilometres (8.5 miles) to the east of Chelmsford. Famous as the site of the 10th century Battle of Maldon, the town is graced by a charming High Street with a series of intact period buildings and the picturesque Thames sailing barges moored at Hythe Quay.
Maldon is highly rated as a lifestyle location and benefits from a number of local facilities for sports and leisure, together with its compliment of shops, supermarkets, primary and secondary schools.
The town is accessed via the A414 from the south which provides links to Chelmsford and the A12. Mainline rail services are available from the nearby towns of Witham and Hatfield Peverel, providing links to London to the south and Ipswich to the north.
Sadds Wharf is a large waterfront land parcel occupying a dominant position on the northern banks of the River Chelmer, offering excellent views up and down the river including lovely views south to Maldon town centre and Hythe Quay.
The site is bound to the east by Heybridge Creek, to the west by the residential Granaries building and to the north by the predominantly residential Old Engine Shed site. It forms part of Maldon District Council's North Quay Regeneration Area which encourages redevelopment and encompasses residential, office, hospitality, retail and warehouse uses. Access to Sadd's Wharf is via Station Road from the west, which links to the B1018.
