There are strong links with our Twin Town Wallenfels in Bavaria, Germany, and each year residents from each Town meet up be it in Wallenfels or Bingham.  A new play area opened in 2009 and is called Wallenfels Park.

Bingham Linear Park

The Linear Park is owned by the Town Council and is supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteers, The Friends of Bingham Linear Park.

The Old Court House is where the Council Offices are located and where the Town Clerk is based. All of the council’s business and meetings are conducted here but in addition the building is also available to hire as a venue for meetings.
