Swaffham Prior lies 5 miles west of Newmarket. The village is often paired with its neighbour Swaffham Bulbeck, and are collectively referred to as 'The Swaffhams'. The village is has twin churches that have served the parish since at least the 12th century – the Church of St Mary (first built in Norman times and later restored), and the Church of St Cyriac and St Julitta (built prior to 1200, and may possibly have existed before 1066 restored later). In 1667 a parliamentary order combined the churches under a single parish. St Mary's serves as the parish church. The church of St Cyriac and St Julitta, having fallen into disuse, was ordered to be demolished in 1787. The order was never carried out. It now serves as a hall for exhibitions and other functions.
