Binham Priory
Binham Priory
The Benedictine Priory at Binham was founded in the 11th Century. The church took over 100 years to build, spanning the transition from Norman to Early English architectural forms. This can be seen in the photo - the upper row of windows go from round Norman arches on the right to pointed Gothic arches on the left. The transition is even more noticeable inside.

The priory was suppressed in 1539, after which most of the buildings were demolished. The nave survives as the parish church of St Mary.
