Discover the wonders of Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival’s mini beach hut trail
Scores of decorated mini beach huts are on display throughout Cromer and Sheringham as the resorts gear up for their annual Crab and Lobster Festival.
Schools, shops, restaurants, pubs, businesses, churches and community groups are among those sponsoring the mini huts which form this year's seaside-themed trail through the two towns.
Artists have been busy transforming the little buildings into eye-catching creations which visitors can admire.
Leaflets listing where each of the 102 huts is located are now available at outlets throughout the towns.
The annual trail is the prelude to the seventh festival, which is on May 21 and 22.
The mini huts will stay on display until they are auctioned on August 28, with proceeds going to good causes.
Last year's trail objects, decorated ships' wheels, raised more than £7,000.

Cromer's Hilary Cox, joint president of the festival with Sheringham's Noel Gant, said it had developed as a way of uniting the two towns because, in the past, there had been 'slight animosity' between the resorts' fishermen.
It was a chance for visitors to explore each town fully and savour traditional food and skills.
'We know we live in a beautiful place and we want to share it,' she added.
Mrs Cox praised the involvement of Cromer-based charity About With Friends, which supports adults with learning difficulties. Members had made all the beach hut models.
She said: 'They have done a really tremendous job for us.'
