Rock hunting involves decorating rocks, stones and pebbles, before hiding them for others to find.

The stones are decorated using pen or paint, sealed to ensure they aren't ruined by the rain and then those that find them are able to keep them or hide for someone else to enjoy.

A community Facebook page for the project, called Norfolk Rocks, was set up by Rocky Rainboe.

He said: 'Two weeks in to another long summer holiday I was looking for something new to help while away the hours when I stumbled upon rock hunting.
