Cressing Temple is the site on which the Knights Templar built their most substantial estate in the 12th Century. Nothing remains of their fine Estate except two enormous Barns. The 'Wheat Barn' was built around 1206 and the 'Barley Barn’ around 1256.
The Barley Barn will accommodate around 30 stands of Antiques, while the Wheat Barn, which houses a small museum of farming history, will accommodate around 15 modern ART stands.
Additionally the site offers a selection of 16th to 19th century farm buildings and implements. Visitors are welcome to roam and explore!
There is a beautiful re-creation (1995) of the Tudor Walled Garden, complete with Tudor planting for medicine, scent, flowers and food, alongside a viewing platform and fountain and rill – a real delight!
