About

Thomas Plume’s Library was founded in 1704 under the terms of the will of Dr Thomas Plume who had been born in Maldon in 1630. He bequeathed his collection of some 8,100 books and pamphlets, to be kept in the building which he had constructed from the ruins of the old St Peter’s Church. The building still houses his books, as well as his small collection of paintings. Although they may no longer be borrowed, books from the Library may be consulted without appointment during normal opening hours, (identification required) and the catalogue may be consulted online.

ACCESS RESTRICTED - VIA STEEP AND NARROW SPIRAL STAIRCASE. Maximum capacity of 10 people at a time.
Groups must be booked in advance.
Please note also that this is a working library and a research facility and access may therefore need to be restricted from time to time according to the needs of scholars already at work.
