Maldon Historic Barns Project

Essex has the best collection of timber-framed barns open to the public. The two great barns at Cressing Temple along with the one at Coggeshall are probably the oldest in England.

The Prior’s Barn at Widdington is also worth visiting. It is a very well preserved example of a 15th century timber-framed barn - a period when this type of structure was at its zenith.
