This is my last post on Coggleshall and we will look at the exterior of Paycocks, a house built for Thomas Paycocke, around 1500
It is a grand example of the wealth generated by the cloth trade in the 16th century
and lastly Grange Barn that originally belonged to Coggleshall Abbey. Carbon dating suggests the original barn was constructed aprox. 1130 and was altered in the 14th century.
It continued in agracultural use until 1960 after which it was neglected.
It was then restored, taking 2 years, and completed in 1985.
