Cressing Temple Barns
Witham Road, Braintree, CM77 8PD
“Cressing Temple takes its unusual name from the medieval monks of the Knights Templar who founded the two vast wooden barns, which form the centrepiece of this delightful rural estate. Nestled to one side of the barns is the Walled Garden. Inspired by an age when gardens combined beauty and functionality, it is the result of painstaking research and archaeological excavation, and is filled with species widely cultivated at the time.”
Essex Days Out Tips : the barns are enormous, the Wheat Barn has a permanent exhibition, and there’s a lovely walled garden. but if you want to spend some hours there, go when there’s a special event on: they have plenty of them!
