Great Dunmow: The Museum at The Maltings

A small but impressive town museum can be found at The Maltings just off of the High Street in Great Dunmow. Covering many aspects of the town’s history, including the famous Dunmow Flitch Trial, it makes a pleasant weekend afternoon out. Visitors can also learn about the railway, clock making, milling and brewing. The Museum is housed in buildings which date back to c.1565 used at one time for malting barley for the former brewery. The Grade II* building has been sympathetically restored and is now a meeting room as well as a museum. It open virtually every weekend throughout the year. For more information visit the Great Dunmow Museum website: . Information about the building can be found by following this link:
