Crosswell Services Limited
Myskyns was originally built approximately 100 years ago as a market garden. Set in over 1 acre of ground with orchards and with it's own natural spring the property was ideally suited to this task. The single story dwelling (shown at the top right of the photograph) has been continually improved over the years. Back in world war II Myskyns had a bomb shelter built in the grounds and was used by the home guard as part of the defence of Harwich docks. In more recent times the estate has been used as a campsite. Situated adjacent to a protected bird reserve made this a very popular holiday attraction.

Crosswell's history with Myskyns
Crosswell began converting Myskyns in February 2001 and have since constructed purpose built workshops and offices (shown at the bottom right area of the photograph).
