Bodham All Saints Church is what is called one of the Weybourne group of Parishes on the North Norfolk Coast in the Diocese of Norfolk. located about a mile from the village towards West Beckham, this church that was repaired and restored in 1633, 1859 and 1893 stands alone in its churchyard. It has an interesting tiled holy water stoup in the front porch, a 17th century octagonal ironstone font, a chancel that is 14th century or Decorated, a 18th century communion rail and possibly pulpit to match. The pews and pulpit are from the old workhouse, In April 1888 the building was partly destroyed by fire, but although the workhouse was soon restored to accommodate 539 inmates by 1890 there were only 78 occupants. In the early 20th century the building became Beckham Hospital, which included an isolation unit for TB sufferers, and the hospital continued to operate until the 1950's. For a short time the buildings housed servicemen from nearby bases, but by 1962 the building had again become a hospital and around this time it was renamed ‘Beckham Palace.’ However, by the 1970s the workhouse buildings were derelict and were progressively demolished. By 1994 only the derelict Hospital Block (the former north wing of the workhouse) remained. Bodham, All Saints Church, square west tower, 1 bell, nave, chancel and south porch. Mainly Decorated work.
