Cressing Temple

Cressing Temple is found between Witham and Braintree, Essex. It is interesting mainly for its unique buildings and gardens. Given to the Knights Templar in 1137, its Grade I-listed Barley and Wheat Barns, built in the 13th century, are among the oldest timber barns and few surviving Templar buildings in England. Displays inside outline the history of the Templars and the site.

The image above was taken in the Walled Garden, which is faithfully reconstructed as a Tudor pleasure garden – one of few in the country. I edited the image in Luminar.
