Description of Maulds Meaburn
Maulds Meaburn is a quiet, picturesque village in the Lyvennet Valley. The village is laid out around the wide village green with the River Lyvennet running through the centre. The river is a tributary of the River Eden and a Special Area of Conservation. The buildings range in date from the early 16th century to the late 19th century. Several buildings are listed including the Grade II* buildings of Meaburn Hall, a Jacobean house, and a Palladian styled villa called Flass. A Scheduled Ancient Monument designation protects the earthworks and buried remains of Maulds Meaburn medieval settlement, field system and mill race. Although the date of the first settlement is unknown it is likely to have pre-dated the late 11th century Norman conquest of the region.
