Binham priory is one of a number of locations in Norfolk that is supposed to be haunted.

The story goes that a tunnel is rumoured to have existed between the priory and nearby pilgrimage site village of Walsingham. A fiddler went to explore the tunnel with his dog and played a tune as he walked to let the people on the surface who followed him know where he was. When he reached a spot (now known as Fiddler's Hill), the music stopped and although his dog reappeared, and he was never seen again.

In 1933 the road near Fiddler's Hill was widened and the barrow was cut through. Inside, 3 skeletons, including a girl and a dog were found.

Since then, a monk, dressed in black is supposed to walk from the priory to Walsingham, around 3 miles cross-country.

Details of other paranormal events reports in Norfolk can be found in the Paranormal Database.

The BBC's Norfolk website also has strange tales about the county!
