Binham Priory guided tours

There is a Guided Tour of Binham Priory and its monastic precincts every Sunday and Tuesday afternoon starting at 3.00pm. These tours last for about an hour and run throughout the summer months from May to September. Booking ahead is not necessary. Many visitors find the interpretation panels very informative but if you like to ask questions or want the latest news about this building then do come along and join one of our tours.
Group tours can be arranged at mutually convenient times by contacting Maureen Frost on 01328 830362. A donation of £2 per person will help us to maintain this magnificent priory church.

Rector’s Message

Dear Friends and Parishioners,

At last the days of Promise: bright early mornings and the evenings getting longer and longer; and all living things reaching up and out.  And these blessed weeks make a golden setting for that most precious jewel, Easter.  This yearly recalling of the actual day of the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is packed with power.  Here is Life given up, Life restored and Life eternal made available for all.  It has changed everything and may change everyone.  The persisting power of the Risen Christ glides on the wheels of promise.

May 20: Very Early Morning by Luci Shaw (20th C.)

 all the field praises him/all

dandelions are his glory/gold

and silver all trilliums unfold

white flames above their trinities

of leaves all wild strawberries

and massed wood violets reflect his skies’

clean blue and white

all brambles/all oxeyes

all stalks and stems lift to his light

all young windflower bells

tremble on hair

springs for his air’s

carillon touch/last year’s yarrow (raising

brittle star skeletons) tells

age is not past praising

all small low unknown

unnamed weeds show his impossible greens

all grasses sing

tone on clear tone

all mosses spread a spring –

soft velvet for his feet

and by all means

all leaves/buds/all flowers cup

jewels of fire and ice

holding up

to his kind of morning heat

a silver sacrifice

 

now

make of our hearts a field

to raise your praise

 

May I wish you a glorious Summer,

Yours very truly,

Ian Whittle
