A second guided tour of the Dad's Army trail in Thetford will be held on Sunday, September 26.

Since its launch in May, the town trail has proved popular with coach parties.

At the first public guided tour, visitors from all over the country came to find out more about the environment in which the TV comedy was filmed.

Guide Stuart Wright said: “We expected the attendees to be from a 20-30 mile radius of Thetford, so it was a pleasant surprise to meet people from Derbyshire and Hertfordshire.

“It just goes to show the interest there is in Dad's Army, which is a great help for the town in attracting visitors.
