Plans for a 30-metre-long mural have been revealed for one of Norfolk's coastal towns.

The mural, depicting a "time deep back in history", would feature a scene of the West Runton Steppe mammoths that lived in the area more than 900,000 years ago.

Coming as part of the Sheringham Community Art Project (SCAP), if approved the mural will be built from 127 recycled scaffolding boards having been prepared, cut, and painted off-site before fixing.

Spanning 28 metres long and three to four metres high in some places, it would be set on the sea wall slope next to the Offshore Cafe at the bottom of Beach Road.

Also planned are life-size mammoth footprints painted on the promenade footpath, along with a shelter further east that would be decorated inside and outside with imagery of prehistoric men. 

Mock-ups of the site by Sheringham-based architects SMG were included in the plans submitted to North Norfolk District Council.

In the application, SMG stated: "We have worked closely with the Sheringham Town Council in developing these images which really show off how these fantastic this mural will look once it is in place to bring this section of the Sheringham promenade to life."
