Drawing of Cressing Temple Barns

Cressing Temple

The two 13th Century barns at Cressing Temple, Essex were host to an Antiques and Collectors fair last weekend and I took the opportunity to visit and look at all the curios and antiques on offer. The barns are truly magnificent and a worthy setting for this type of event.

My pen, wash and pencil drawing takes in the two barns, fresh in spring sunshine and perhaps the first decent bathing of sunshine for a good few months. The scale is impressive - note the people I have penned in in my painting. Barley Barn (c.1205) is to the left of the illustration and the Wheat Barn is to the right (c.1257).

The Tudor walled garden is next on my list of Essex jewels that deserve some time spent in them with sketchpad. Watch this space and do get down there for yourselves. The site has been here since 1137 so why wait any longer? The Barns are located Witham and Braintree.
