The village of Hindringham was actually
mentioned in the will of the Saxon Bishop of North
Elmham. The church of St. Martin stands on a rise in the centre of
the village and one can just glimpse the sea at Stiffkey
which is five miles away. Stiffkey Marsh is a continuation of Morston
Marshes and is one of the oldest saltmarsh along the Norfolk coastline.
Hindringham is a good base for those looking for a quiet place to retreat
to at the end of the day yet near enough to local attractions for those
looking for a varied range of activities and diversions.
Although the village does not have a shop or a village pub, Binham under two miles away does. The Chequers Inn at Binham offers a range of good quality food and drink, in a traditionally comfortable Public house. Binham village is dominated by Binham Priory a beautiful, atmospheric building surrounded by the ruins of its great monastery, located in fields on the edge of the village.
Nearby is the Thursford Collection a must for Wurlitzer and traction engine enthusiasts with live entertainment and lots more.
