Demolition work has begun on a Kessingland pub campaigners fought hard to save.
It was announced last year that the King's Head pub would be partly knocked down to build new homes.
Initially permission had been sought to bulldoze the whole site, but this was rejected, saving the main part of the High Street building.
And this week, contractors moved in to tear down the outbuildings at the back.
Kessingland Parish Council Chairman Liam Martin said: 'We did object to the whole building being demolished and at the end of the day the only part we could keep from being demolished was the front part, but that's the planning process.
'Initially when the first application came in we worked hard with the district council to keep the whole building but we had to relinquish the back part unfortunately and we lost out.
