The small village of West Acre is quiet and pretty with some fascinating sites such as the Augustinian Priory. The fords make picturesque features of the peaceful country lanes.
Remains of the Augustinian Priory - during the medieval period, West Acre was a place of some religious importance. The Augustinian Order built a medieval priory during the reign of Henry I (1100-1135) which was in use until around 1538. The remains of the priory church, cloisters, chapter house, gatehouse, barn and other buildings survive on site and the extensive earthworks relating to this monastic compound can also be observed.
All Saints' Church - the medieval church was largely re-modelled circa 1638 in an early Gothic Revival style by Sir Edward Barkham to commemorate his first election as Lord Mayor of London in 1621. Only the roofs and one internal door are 19th century alterations. It contains some beautiful 17th century woodwork and an important collection of 19th century monuments.
