About Braintree 

Braintree is an area located in the rural north of the county of Essex. The region has a unique history, displayed in its historical landmarks and the local Braintree museum. Originally built at the crossing of two Roman roads, Braintree developed through the centuries into a southern textiles hub.

 Flemish immigrants came to the area in the 14th century, bringing with them their skills as woollen cloth manufacturers. However, in the early 19th century, when cotton was turning towns such as Manchester into modern, industrial cities, Braintree's weavers changed their tack. They began producing more refined silk cloth rather than wool. Another point of brilliant interest is Cressing Temple Barns.

Braintree Horse Drawn Carriages

 These are a group of Grade I listed structures, one of which is the oldest timber-framed barn in the world and was gifted to the Knights Templar in the 12th century by King Stephen's wife. The remaining area contains numerous market towns and villages hosting excellent cafes, shops and restaurants for you to visit. Braintree is also home to award-winning breweries and vineyards.
