Book Tickets Online


The Old House in Rochford was built in 1270, seated on South Street it's a real gem in the District's crown and a must see for everyone.
Built of a timber frame with wattle and daub panels the house really was the height of luxury in medieval England.
Rochford District Council bought the building in 1982 and using traditional methods managed to restore the house to its original glory using as much of the original materials as possible, there was even a cauldron of handmade limewash in the garden area which was used to paint the outside walls.
Groups can arrange tours with the Rochford Town Team: or alternatively contact the Leisure & Cultural Services team at Rochford District Council (via contact details above)
