They are some of Norfolk's oldest and most recognisable landmarks, but an amateur photographer from Norwich has given them a bit of a makeover.

Ben Gadsby-Williams, who lives on Cowgate Street in Norwich, has created 'literal landmarks', where he makes the landmark into its name using photoshop.

So far the budding photographer, who works as a support worker for Independance Matters, has recreated the Horsey Windpump near Great Yarmouth, built in 1912, made out of horses, and the artillery blockhouse, Cow Tower, built in 1398 in Norwich, is made out of cows.

But, most brilliant of all, is Bishop Bridge, the 14th century Norwich bridge which has been changed to have over 100 faces of the Rt Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich.

Mr Gadsby-Williams said of his pictures: 'I'm part of a Norfolk photography group on Facebook and I thought it would be funny to create Cow Tower out of cows.
