Who does not love a good caravanning holiday?
Every year hundreds of the mobile homes make the trip to our coastline as holiday makers look to enjoy our sunny beaches or explore the broads.
These pictures show the heritage of caravanning across our region and look at how they have changed throughout the years.
Norfolk has had its fair share of quirky and interesting caravans. From caravan boats, such as the Caraliner, to traditional Gipsy caravans such as the one lived in by Jeff Williams and Jan Mohan.
Our county is a much loved destination for caravanners, with more than 100 caravan and camping sites listed across the area. Cromer, Sheringham and Great Yarmouth being popular destinations for sun seekers to pitch their homes.
