Ashlyns Farm Moat which is the site of the former Manor of Ashlyns. The manor is first recorded in the 14th. From 1672 it belonged to the Royal College of Physicians to pay for staff at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, St. Thomas's Hospital, and Christ’s College. In 1922 the college sold it. The current far house may be 17th. Since 1970 it has been in the same family and was the earliest organic farm in Essex.
