About

The World War One Avenue of Remembrance at Promenade Park begins by the coach park and loops around the field to the main vehicle entrance from Park Drive. The Avenue originally consisted of 180 numbered trees and was dedicated on 27 November 1935 by the Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Brigadier-General Sir Richard Colvin, KCB, and Canon L.L. Seymour, the Vicar of All Saints Church.

At the time it was described by the British Legion as; "the biggest thing that the ex-service personnel have ever attempted". The King's representative, the Lord Lieutenant, placed the first tree, followed by the Mayor who positioned another on behalf of the District. A signal was then given and the friends and relatives of each of the fallen simultaneously planted the avenue of Chestnut trees. Two buglers from the 2nd Somersets, stationed at Colchester, sounded the general salute and the Last Post.

It was said that the trees would act as; "a remembrance for many centuries to come, to be cherished and cared for by the people of the Maldon District and guarded with loving care". In 2012 the Avenue was rededicated, and the individual plaques were removed as a number of trees had died, although several of these have since been replaced. A display board features all the names of those who died.
