The Benedictine Binham Priory was founded around 1091 and closed in 1539 After the dissolution of the monasteries it seemed the priory would be dismantled. A well-known local man, Edward Paston, started to use the masonry to build himself a new manor house. However during the demolition a workman was killed. This was considered to be a very bad omen and work was stopped.
