Cressing Temple is an ancient monument situated between Witham and Braintree in Essex, close to the villages of Cressing and White Notley. It was amongst the very earliest and largest of the possessions of the Knights Templar in England, and is currently open to the public as a visitor site. It is the location of three Grade I listed Medieval barns, one of which is the oldest standing timber-framed barn in the world.

  • The barns are large but very difficult to enter, you have to be a determined mountain goat to get in.
  • Beautiful and well kept. So much open space with a particularly peaceful walled garden! Nice varieties of flowers and plants to buy!🪴 And probably the most beautifully architecturally designed cafe in Braintree! Highly recommend a visit!
