One of the most complete monastic ruins in Norfolk. The Benedictine priory was founded in the late 11th Century and has a well-documented history. The nave, with its 13th century west front and great (bricked-up) window, is the parish church, displaying a screen with medieval saints over-painted with Protestant texts. Church is maintained by Binham PCC. (The ruins are in the guardianship of English Heritage).
