Coggeshall Grange belonged to the local abbey. It is one of the oldest barns in the country, being built some time between the building of the Barley Barn at Cressing Temple in the first quarter of the thirteenth century and the Wheat Barn built about 50 years later.

It is a six bay, timber-framed, aisled barn with wagon entrances at the second and fifth bays. It has remnants of the original passing braces, which were later replaced by the present crown-post trusses. The roof is half-hipped with gablets and is covered in clay tiles. The walls are clad with horizontal clapboard.

The barn is occasionally closed for weddings and other events, so please check the National Trust web site before visiting.
