Binham is a small village with a long history. Pretty cottages old and new surround the Green where the old cross stands. The remains of the Priory founded 800 years ago by Peter de Valoines, nephew of the Conqueror, and left ruined at the Dissolution, can be visited. The nave was spared as it was used as the parish church and is used to the present day as the Church of St. Mary and the Cross. The entrance through the ruined gatehouse leads to the magnificent west front built by Prior Richarde de Parco.
Not all buildings are historic and the village is thriving with a large modern Memorial Hall, play area and playing field for community use, as well as allotments. The Little Dairy shop is adjacent to the Priory, with a proposed new café next to it at the planning application stage, the shop is on the Green and family friendly/dog friendly Chequers public house is in the centre of the village on Front Street. There are also plenty of groups for varying interests.
