NAVE OF OLD BINHAM PRIORY USED AS PARISH CHURCH

NAVE OF OLD BINHAM PRIORY USED AS PARISH CHURCH

Binham Priory in Norfolk was founded as a cell to the Benedictine house at St. Albans, and of its former grandeur the Norman nave, used as the parish church, the ruined chancel and transepts, and the gatehouse remain. The picturesque ruins on the right of the photograph give some idea of the once stately monastic house, while the east end of the church still retains fragments of the original structure. On the south side of the nave are traces of the old cloisters.
