A trio of town greats are set be honoured in Cromer next year.
Victorian writer and theatre critic Clement Scott, anti-slavery campaigner Priscilla Buxton and pioneering homoeopath Edward Bach are the latest notables to be recognised with a blue plaque.
The plaque to Scott, who coined the phrase Poppyland will be placed on the Hotel de Paris, designed by renowned Norfolk architect George Skipper.
Edward Bach, who devised homoeopathic treatments derived from flowers and spent winters in Cromer in the 1930s, is to be honoured by a plaque on Brunswick Terrace.
Anti-slavery campaigner Priscilla Buxton is being commemorated with a plaque at North Lodge. She lived at Cromer Hall and Northrepps Hall in the 1820s and 30s.
The ceremony will take place on February 25 -the birthday of Priscilla Buxton.
