Cressing Temple Barns

About

This was the earliest British settlement of the Knights Templar, who were granted the manor in 1135 by King Stephen. Hops have been cultivated here; and the ditches and brooks have been noted for cresses, from which it is assumed that the village gets its name.

Cressing is known today for its medieval barns nearby at Cressing Temple, said to be the two finest Templar barns in Europe.
