A visitors guide to the village of Warham in Norfolk located under
four miles from the North Norfolk coastline. The small quiet inland
village of Warham with its quaint flint and cobble cottages retains its
old world charm. Here the only sound one hears in summer months is
the gentle buzz of a lawnmower or the clink of glasses at the outside
seating area of the local inn. Warham is a good location for those
looking for a quiet base and yet within easy reach of the sea.
To the south of the village, on a rise overlooking
the river Stiffkey, are the remains of an iron age fort known as Warham
Camp, one of the best examples of an Iron Age camp in England.
A huge earthwork situated in area of approximately three acres. This
site has been preserved and walks and tours are sometimes arranged by
the Cromer Museum. It is believed that the Iceni tribe may well have
There is a delightful brick and flint alehouse in the
village of Warham, The Three Horseshoes, which is renowned for good,

Just 2 miles away is the seaside town of Wells-next-the
sea with all its hustle and bustle and miles of pine fringed
beaches. Here you will find a harbour; a narrow gauge Railway from the
Quay to the beach and the Wells - Walsingham light Railway just outside
town. The town offers a wide variety of shop and places to eat. The
beach can either be reached by road, miniature railway or by a grass
covered embankment that runs parallel to the main shipping channel,
making it a pleasant amble.
The village of Binham with its atmospheric
ruins is also not far from Warham. A Benedictine religious house founded in the late
11th century by a nephew of William the Conqueror, Pierre de Valoines.
After surrendering to Henry VII, as part of the dissolution of the
monasteries, the monastic buildings were mostly pulled down, until one
of the workmen was killed, which the villagers took to be an omen of
Gods Wrath, so stopped. It is still used as a place of worship to
this day and in the summer months services are held at the open air
alter. Its magical atmosphere and rich acoustics means that it
also plays host to a number of concerts during the summer months.
