Maldon: Yarnbomber decorates statue at night for Battle of Maldon anniversary
Mysterious yarnbombers have decorated a statue to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Maldon.
Over the weekend, a knitted shield cover, helmet and leg guards were attached to the statue of Saxon warrior Byrhtnoth, situated at the end of Promenade Park.
Balloons were also spotted on two neaby benches with the words ‘Happy Anniversary Byrhtnoth’ - marking when the Earl of Essex met his end at a battle with invading Vikings 1,022 years ago.
See this week's MBS for full story and interview with the yarnbomber.
