Introduction to the Villages

Banham ChurchBanham

More than just a zoo! The tree lined village green has old thatched houses with overhanging storeys, and is dominated by the church of St. Mary the Virgin. Based along the B1113 the village stretches for almost 2 miles. Industries in Banham have included the Gaymer Cider factory and brick making from the clay found around the area.

At the 'Zoo' end of the village is The Appleyard with a number of small shops and a Spar shop. There is a Primary School (approx. 120 pupils), village shop and post office, two pubs (Banham Barrel and the Garden House), as well as an active Community Centre.

New Buckenham

Small village based on a still intact medieval 'grid pattern'. There is a large common designated a Conservation Area to the East of the village. Amongst a number of 16th century houses is the market house on stilts. There is currently one pub - the Inn on the Green, a selection of local shops including general store with post office and bakery. On the edge of the village is the remains of a castle with circular stone keep.

Contender for the largest village green in Britain, Old Buckenham has a restored windmill, two pubs (The Gamekeeper and Ox and Plough) and All Saints Church. It also has a Primary School (around 200 pupils) and the Secondary School for the area. Just past the pond is the village stores and post office.
