Cressing Temple itself is steeped in history dating back to the 1100’s when it was given to the Knights Templar and home to three Grade I listed barns as well as Tudor built Walled Gardens.
In the 13th Century the Barley and Wheat Barns were constructed, which are described by the historian Michael Haag as being “the two finest Templar-built barns in Europe”. The Granary barn was built some time later in the 16th Century and is the largest granary in Essex.
Going Digital are now using the barns for the Birds of Prey workshops. One of the barns is easily big enough to fly the birds in inclement weather. We will cover the technical aspects in a modern fully equipped classroom. Refreshments available from the TipTree tea room
