Grange Hill, Coggeshall, Colchester, Essex, CO6 1RE

One of Europe’s oldest timber-framed buildings, it has a cathedral-like interior and is linked to a local Cistercian abbey. Inside the barn hosts an exhibition of local woodcarving, tools and a collection of agricultural carts.

ESSEX DAYS OUT TIP : It’s a very short walk from Coggeshall High Street and you can spend a lot of time in the village, Paycocke’s House and Grange Barn (and having lunch!).
