Lovely peaceful place to visit in the heart of Norfolk. Free to visit and worth an hour or more of your time.

The Little Dairy Shop next door is not to miss.

This is a stunning site, which clearly evidences the after effects of Henry V111's Dissolution of the Monasteries. The Nave remains as the Parish Church and is testament to the perseverance and hard work of the local population.
It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit.

Free parking.
Toilet in the church.
Farm shop selling a variety of things including raw milk and beverages.
We bought some jams and have tried two of them and they are delicious.
The Norman Church was also lovely. Still in use. The architecture still remains and it was interesting to note the earlier Norman arches, all with individual carvings, and the slightly later arches added towards the end of the construction. Lots of information inside the church itself.
The priory ruins are interesting but the rooms were not clearly identified as to their use.
It is a lovely place to visit on a warm sunny day like we did. Picnic benches alongside the carpark but the lawned areas would make for a great place to sit too.
Well worth a visit if you are interested in that sort of thing.

An amazing place with the church open to visitors and surrounded by some impressive ruins. Lots of parking and a very interesting visit for an hour or so.

whilst walking between villages we came across this EH site. It is so beautiful nestled in the village on Binham, and a very quiet place to wonder around as the monks did.

Lovely place to wander about. We also got rather addicted to the raw milk and at the end of our holiday, stopped off for cheese and butter and jam. What is there not to like.

Superb 12th/13th-century priory church with evocative monastic ruins (good for hide-and-seek), set amid green meadows on the edge of a pretty village. On-site cheese shop!

You could easily miss this and drive straight past. We didn't and went for a walk round. It was surprisingly interesting, worth a look. Nice surroundings and an interesting church. If you like history this is a must.

Set in tranquil surroundings, fields of buttercups with horses nearby make it a very picturesque site. The ruins are interesting with information boards dotted about telling the story of how the monks lived. The church is well worth a visit (I think it opens at 11am). Cafe next door to free car park. Peaceful place to visit in these strange time.

This is most definitely worth a visit. The Benedictine Priory is still impressively intact in places. It dates from 1091. Overall a very inspiring monastic ruin and I hope my photos give a feel of the tranquility and historic interest,
