The nave of the priory church at Binham remains in use.
Parts of the south aisle lie outside the present parish church.
The choir and presbytery lie to the east of the present parish church and are now in a ruinous state.
The north and south transepts are clearly marked.
The night stairs are located in the south transept. These led to the dorter.
The foundations of the late 11th century building are marked out in the north aisle.
The Lady Chapel may have been located on the north side.
One of the Ministry signs has been used at Helmsley Castle in Yorkshire. Variants of this include ‘Out of Bounds’ (Berwick upon Tweed), ‘No Access Beyond This Point’ (Dundrennan Abbey), ‘Private’ (Hadrian’s Wall; New Abbey Cornmill), ‘No Admittance Without Ticket’ (Saxtead Green), and ‘No Admittance to Abbey This Way’ (Easby Abbey).
There was a ‘No Exit’ sign at Framlingham Castle.
Within the cloister at Glenluce is a recessed book cupboard marked by a Ministry sign.
For other books cupboards:
The top of Cardoness Castle provides views over the estuary. Visitors are discouraged from trying to get on top of the walls. One points out the danger, the other expressly forbids it.
The second reproduces the word ‘Notice’: surely redundant on a sign? And the clear indication that ‘visitors are not allowed on wall top’ is ‘by order’; underneath is an erased line, ‘Ministry of Works’.
The Ministry signs at Melrose Abbey encourage visitors to ‘keep off’ the uncovered remains.
The polite Ministry sign in the inner ward at Norham Castle warns visitors to take care, especially in wet weather.
