Tucked between the towns of Witham and Braintree, Cressing Temple is the biggest and most historically important Knights Templar in Essex, and among only a few still surviving in England.

Set in beautiful grounds, the 13th century Barley and Wheat Barns are a rare example of a medieval Essex farmstead – and they are free to visit on non-event days. The serene gardens, including an original walled Tudor herb garden, make this location perfect for summer picnics.

There is a Tiptree Tea Room on site, too, offering refreshment from 9:30am-5:00pm (summer). The estate has toilets, disabled and baby changing facilities.

Not only are these fine timber-built buildings stunning to view, they also acts as a popular exhibition site.
