Braintree Town in Essex
The district has four delightful market towns; Braintree, Coggeshall, Halstead and Witham, each unique in their own way and worth a visit. Marvel at historic houses and gardens, such as the National Trust properties of Paycockes and Grange Barn, or the landscaped woodland walks and footpaths of Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum, with its ever changing colours reflecting the seasons! For heritage enthusiasts, why not pay a visit to the magnificent medieval barns of Cressing Temple, the largest of its kind in Europe or enjoy thrilling displays by jousting knights at Hedingham Castle, home to one of the best preserved Norman Keeps in Europe. The 14th century woollen cloth trade brought prosperity to the area leaving a legacy of fine architecture and listed buildings whilst the 18th century heralded the arrival of silk weaving and the famous Huguenot name of Courtauld. By the mid-19th century the opening of a railway line led to the establishment of large engineering firms such as Crittall’s metal window company and Lake & Elliot iron foundry. A full story of Braintree’s diverse industrial heritage and traditions is told at the District Museum in the town centre. The Warner Textile Archive, a nationally important archive, houses a unique collection of original artwork by leading 20th century designers - with fabric samples boasting royal connections! There is a lot for families to do too. Visit the Colne Valley Railway where everyone can enjoy a ride on a vintage steam or diesel engine, Thomas the Tank Engine may even make an appearance too! A visit to Great Notley Country Park is a must. It’s a child’s paradise, from giant see-saws to Essex’s biggest climbing frame, a climbing forest and a toddler’s play area. If shopping is more your thing, then head to Freeport where you can hunt for a bargain or two. With so much to offer a day is not enough, so why not stay a while longer?
Did you know that the oldest timber-framed barn in the world is at Cressing Temple near Braintree? The huge Barley Barn was built in about 1206AD by the Knights Templar , and stands next to a more recent structure – well, Wheat Barn was erected in 1256. Cressing Temple was the first land in England granted to the Templars, the holding run to raise funds for the organisation’s work in the Holy Land. These days the complex hosts events, including weddings.
