New masthead


Maldon and Dengie CAMRA is now working with Chelmsford & mid-Essex CAMRA and North-West Essex CAMRA to produce "Thirsty Times", the popular quarterly free magazine dedicated to news and stories about real ale, cider, pubs and breweries.


The Autumn 2017 edition will be available in selected pubs in our area from mid September.  Alternatively, you can download the PDF version of "Thirsty Times" by clicking on the link below.

Thirsty Times - Autumn 2017

Launched on the same day as this year’s Good Beer Guide the new Maldon and Dengie Real Ale and Cider Guide includes all the pubs in our area, from Tiptree in the North to Battlesbridge in the South-West. Every pub, some 90 in all, were visited between July and September to check on amongst other things, the opening hours, beer, cider and food offerings. A short description for each provides an insight as to what you might expect upon visiting. Now widely available in pubs within the branch area, further copies are available from Robert Longley, 42 Pertwee Drive, South Woodham Ferrers Essex, CM3 5NT. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
