A group set up to breathe new life into a hidden gem in Norwich will hold their first annual meeting next week.

The Friends of Kett's Heights have been working to bring the panoramic viewpoint, near Kett's Hill, back to life.

During the late Victorian era, walks and flights of steps were laid out around the chapel ruins and it became a fashionable place to visit.

In 1977, it was given to Norwich City Council by a benefactor and in 1984 local volunteers began developing a wildlife garden and Kett's Heights was opened to the public again. But it became overgrown until the friends group was set up in November 2015.

Volunteers have helped to clear paths and scrub and made the site more welcoming. Guided tours and performances have attracted hundreds of people.
