Cressing Temple Barns

Cressing Temple Barns is a site rich in ancient history. Built in the 13th century, the Grade I listed Barley and Wheat Barns are amongst the oldest timber barns and some of the few surviving Templar buildings in England. The Granary, another Grade I listed timber-framed building, was built just after 1575 and is the largest granary in Essex. Your guide will bring the history of the site to life. There will be an opportunity to buy coffee in the tea rooms before your tour.
