Norfolk's religious past will be the focus of a special new four-part series on Mustard TV.

Chris Bailey and The Holy Trail started this week and is repeated on Thursday on the Freeview 7 and Virgin 159 channels at 8.30pm.

Mr Bailey said: 'Our county has more churches, abbeys, priories and cathedrals collectively than any other in England.

'On my journey around Norfolk I consider the position of these buildings today and what part they play in our 21st century community.'

Historic religious buildings which feature in the programme include Norwich Anglican Cathedral, St John's Catholic Cathedral, the former Wymondham priory and town's remaining abbey, Thetford Priory, St Mary The Virgin church in Houghton-on-the-Hill and Creake Abbey.

The four-part series is being transmitted every Tuesday at 8pm.
