Arriving late in the day at Binham Priory, after a meal and a few pints of Woodfordeʼs excellent Wherry Bitter at the nearby Three Horseshoes at Warham (highly recommended), had its advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantage was that the church (formerly the nave of the Benedictine Priory) was closed, so I couldnʼt view the interior.
The advantages, from a photographic point of view are, I hope, self-evident.
The Priory was was founded in the late 11th century. Originally it had eight monks, rising to thirteen or fourteen in the 14th century, before falling back to six immediately before its suppression 1539.
