Binham is a small village a few miles from Holt and also close to the coast of northern Norfolk and Wells-next-the-Sea
Binham itself is a picturesque place, centred around the village green and with basic facilities - pub, shop etc. and a huddle of traditional Norfolk cottages to explore. Note also the remains of the medieval (15th century) stone 'wayside cross' on the village green.
Binham is best known (and most visited) for the 12th century Binham Priory, a benedictine monastery now managed by English Heritage. Although much of the original structure and buildings were destroyed after the dissolution of the Monasteries under King Henry VIII, ther are still substantial ruins and the nave of the original church is now the local village Church of saint mary and the Holy Cross.
Also close to Binham is the medieval pilgrimage centre at Walsingham.
