Sheringham's most well-used bus shelter is on the road to a make-over, ten years after it was given a steam train-style revamp by a local artist and group of youngsters.

The 1960s building, at Station Approach, has fallen into disrepair, with water damage leading to peeling paint and cracks in the brickwork. The seating is also in need of attention, while a mural depicting the North Norfolk Railway painted during the town carnival in 2008 by artist Colin Seal with the help of local children has seen better days.

Sheringham mayor David Gooch said a town council working party would be putting together a wish list, with a view to putting the work out to tender.

'The shelter is effectively the transport interchange for Sheringham, so it is very important,' Mr Gooch said. 'And the mural was done for the carnival with the intention of re-painting it each year, so we are hoping to have that re-done.'
