Diss often captures the hearts of those visiting, with many choosing to stay in the town.

And now one man who did just that has worked with a museum to bring two recordings of the history of the area to DVD.

David van der Hulks came to Diss in 2015 and soon became a steward at the Friends of Diss Museum, becoming chief guide for the popular walking tour The Stroll Around Diss.

While diving into the town’s history he found two video recordings - Dawn to Dusk, which was created by the Rotary Club of Diss and District, reshowing activities in the town back in June 2000.

Working with the museum, Mr van der Hulks added the music of busker Jack Austin, who performs regularly in the town.

The other recording was a video of The Stroll in 2011. This was created for the Diss and District Society before being given to the museum.

The DVDs are available from Diss Museum, open every day from 11am and 3pm.
