Cressing Temple Barns | Recommended Venue in Braintree
Cressing Temple, Witham Road, Cressing, Braintree
Cressing Temple takes its unusual name from the medieval monks of the Knights Templar who founded the two vast 13th century timber barns, which form the centrepiece of this delightful rural estate.
The Tudor Walled Garden is 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.
Set in peaceful surroundings, the gardens also make a perfect escape on a clear winter’s day. The barns are open throughout the main season, and visitors can enjoy a full programme of cultural events.
