North Norfolk District Council closed Pretty Corner Woods near Sheringham on September 29, after storms caused extensive damage to the woodland.

Following the bad weather the council closed the area so rangers could carry out an assessment of the woods and find out what work was needed to make it safe.

Now, after almost a month of work, which has seen rangers clearing debris, identifying unstable trees and hanging or brittle branches the woodland has been reopened.

Posting a message on social media, NNDC said: “Our Countryside Team have re-opened Pretty Corner Woods for the public to enjoy again.

Pretty Corner is a 165-acre patchwork woodland and heathland, and is one of the council’s ‘Green Flag’ parks.
