We are excited to announce this brand new venue & exclusive to Fright Nights Essex: Cressing Temple Barn!
This beautiful & historic location is crying out to be investigated & we can’t wait to get started.
As the name suggests, the Knights Templar were given the land in 1137. The 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. Another Grade-I listed timber-framed building, the Granary, built sometime just after 1575, is the largest granary in Essex. There is also the farmhouse, well house & stables. When construction began on the walled garden, the remains of a man were found when work started on the walled garden. Rather unusually, the man’s head was placed by his feet before burial. What is the significance of this ritual? There was previously a chapel in the grounds, opposite the granary.
We have the entire site to investigate. There are 2 barns; the Wheat barn & the Malt barn. We also have full access to the granary, the walled garden, the well house, the stables & the farmhouse including the cellar!
This is a vast area to explore but we will do what we can to investigate as much as possible!
