Maldon death

Elsewhere in this article (a collection of news snippets from country areas) it was reported that, earlier in the week, the temperature had reached 112°F.  This high temperature had been only one of a week’s worth of temperatures over the 100°F mark for the small town of Bridgewater located not all that far north of Maldon.

It comes as no surprise that the youth of Maldon would have been seeking respite in the dams.
