Binham is a small and friendly village surrounded by fields of arable and dairy farming, with many fine flint cottages, houses and farmhouses. It is situated between Wells-next-the-Sea and Holt.
The villages 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.
Many of the cottages in the village were built using stones from the ruins. The particularly fine acoustics of the church attracts musicians of high repute.
The local Shop
Howells super store is a corner shop in the old tradition. It is very conveniently situated 600m from The Village Hall, right in the centre of the village. You can buy all your supplies here, from milk and newspapers to paintbrushes and bicycle pumps. It is also one of the very few village shops in North Norfolk that still provides petrol and diesel.
The Local Pub
The Chequers Inn is a small but cosy pub situated 500m from The Village Hall. It offers a welcoming atmosphere and a range of good quality food and drink, in a traditionally comfortable Public house.
