Training for Essex County Council at Cressing Temple Farm

Delivered an "Introduction to Interpretation" training workshop for Essex County Council at their Cressing Temple farm attraction between Witham and Braintree in Essex. Workshop included an intensive classroom session followed by a site critique.

Cressing Temple was given to the Knights Templar in 1137. It has 2 Grade I-listed Barley and Wheat Barns, built in the 13th century, which are among the oldest timber barns and few surviving Templar buildings in England. Displays inside outline the history of the Templars and the site.

Among Cressing Temple’s many gardens, the Walled Garden is faithfully reconstructed as a Tudor pleasure garden – one of few in the country. Cream teas at ‘The Barns’ Tea Room and picnics in Cressing Temple’s gardens are popular, as well as events and weddings
