Two projects designed to maintain Great Yarmouth's rich heritage have been awarded grants of £50,000 each.
The Great Yarmouth Rows project and Norfolk Conservation have both been successful in their applications for the coastal revival fund.
The rows project aims to undertake the physical restoration of the ancient narrow streets as well as improving the lighting on the rows.
Norfolk Conservation will use its funding to help restore Great Yarmouth's medieval wall in order to ensure a long term management strategy is in place.
This will involve improving the setting and accessibility of the wall between Blackfriars Road and Mariners Road.
