About

Restored by English Heritage, Prior's Hall Barn is representative of the type of aisled barn in north west Essex, 124 x 30 x 33ft high and little altered.

Offering a step back in time, breathtaking views of its medieval construction and free entry, the barn is a great stop for history buffs. Plenty of information boards to educate on its past.

Open at weekends Apr-Sep
