A rich history

Vaultymanor Rich Heritage Wedding Venue

Early years

In its early life, Vaulty Manor became the property of Beeleigh Abbey in Maldon, donated in 1186 by Robert Mantel, Lord of Little Maldon and the founder of the abbey. Fast forward some 450 years, and the dissolution of the monasteries saw an end to Beeleigh’s ownership. Henry VIII claimed monastic income and properties throughout the country and, in 1536, he gave Vaulty Manor to Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. Gold has an interesting association with the manor and the local area. Goldhanger has had several different spellings, but the name has always started with ‘gold.’ One possible explanation is the link with the colour of the corn marigold, which you can see growing in local farm fields.

Something old, something new

Today, the area is better known for its ‘white gold’ – sea salt harvested from the nearby Blackwater estuary. In the past, Vaulty Manor has also been known as Jehurs Farm and was recorded as part of a local salt works. Despite many changes of ownership, Vaulty Manor retains its special tranquil old world character so you can truly celebrate your special day with “something old, something new”.
