A group of volunteers are celebrating after a long journey to open a museum in a Mid-Norfolk town reached its next stage.
The Museum4Watton group recently signed a lease of part of the town's Wayland Hall, allowing them to open a history museum there.
Currently, funding is being sought to fit the space out, with the group currently looking for around £60,000 to set the museum up for the first 18 months.
It is hoped the museum, which will consist of two rooms, will be opened in the early New Year.
There will be an education and research centre with books and items in relation to the history of the town, artefacts, and a military collection which relates to the RAF and USAF involvement at RAF Watton.
