Vote for Norfolk path projects

Two stately homes in Norfolk are hoping to footpaths improved if enough people vote for them in a national competition.

The National Trust's estates at Blickling and Oxburgh are among the charity's properties seeking a slice of a pot of cash from food company Bovril.

Blickling wants to upgrade a footpath linking it to the nearby town of Aylsham, while Oxburgh wants to improve a path to its wilderness garden to help visitors explore the area.

Both need to beat other Trust projects in an on-line vote by a deadline at the end of the month to win a share of the �100,000 fund. Blickling is currently ranked 19th and Oxburgh 33rd. To vote visit
