Binham is a small village surrounded by fields of arable and dairy farming. Its crowning glory is the Priory Church, founded in 1091 as a Benedictine Priory. The nave of the priory still stands as the Parish Church and is lovingly cared for. It is approached through the medieval gatehouse and stands surrounded by its churchyard on the north and west and its extensive monastic ruins to the east and south. These ruins are owned by the Norfolk Archaeological Trust but under the controlling guardianship of English Heritage.
