Binbrook is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the B1203 road, and 8 miles (13 km) north-east from Market Rasen.

Previously a larger market town,[1] it now has a population of about 700.[citation needed]

Binbrook Grade II listed[2] 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.[1][3]

Binbrook is close to the site of Binbrook Airfield, originally opened as RAF Binbrook; the airfield housing is now the new village of Brookenby.

Orford[edit]

The parish of Binbrook contains the site of the lost medieval village of Orford.[4] 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.[1]
