Judith Neeves shipped out a much-loved sofa from her cottage on the coast road at Brancaster Staithe and brought in works by contemporary artists Bruce Pearson, Tim Hall, Ruth O'Dell and Dave Greenall.

She admits her husband Jon was 'gobsmacked' when the van from the charity shop turned up to collect the settee - mainly because he was sitting on it at the time.

Now the walls of the 20ft long room are hung with views of the coast, Scolt Head Island and Poppyland, along with wildlife studies and other works.

Ms Neeves plans to open the gallery - on the main A149, a stone's throw from the White Horse, around Easter.
