A bit of a hidden wonder, Bromholm or Broomholm Priory also known as Bacton Abbey sits on a piece of farmland just off the coast road as you enter Bacton from the Mundesley end. The Priory is situated on private land, the main surviving gate at the top of a row of cottages, what remains of both the gatehouse and the Priory itself reveals a rather impressive building somewhere back in the past.
The Priory was Clunic, founded in 1113 by William de Glanville, a Norman, the then lord of Bacton. It was built on a Holm, presumably covered in Broom, the name is possibly of Danish/Scandinavian extraction meaning a rise in the land. It would have sat between two now extinct rivers in land susceptible to coastal flooding.
