Binbrook Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Mary and St Gabriel. There were two village churches, St Mary and St Gabriel, since disappeared. A new church with joint dedication was built in 1869 by James Fowler.
The parish of Binbrook contains the site of the lost medieval village of Orford. Orford was the site of a priory of Premonstratensian nuns. The priory was founded around 1170 by Ralf d'Albini of the Anglo-Norman baronial house of Mowbray, and was endowed with the church at Wragby. At the time of suppression in 1539 it held a prioress and 7 nuns.
