Work has begun on north Norfolk’s first Waitrose supermarket.

Between 70-100 contractors are involved in the project, at the former Focus DIY store on North Walsham’s Cromer Road.

But passing motorists are unable to keep a check on progress as tall screens have been erected around the site.

The conversion of the building and associated work is expected to take about 3,500 hours, according to a spokesman.

“The fit out should be complete by November 23, when our new team of partners will start getting the store ready for opening on November 29,” he added.

The Waitrose sign is due to go up during the week beginning November 12.
