Sheringham's nautical history is to be celebrated when the town's new art and sculpture trail is officially opened in December.

The trail has already drawn admiring looks with its wide range of sea-themed subjects from a shark to shipwrecks which can be seen from the town's Oddfellows Hall along the east promenade and back towards the west beach and clifftop grassed area.

On Wednesday, December 3, BBC Look East weather presenter Julie Reinger will open the attraction at 11am.

The trail was commissioned by the SheringhamPlus community part-nership and is the brainchild of north Norfolk artists Mitchell House, Tony Eadson and Colin Seal.

Exhibits along the trail include a series of cold cast bronze plaques depicting scenes from the town's seafaring history and a collection of reclaimed sea defence sculptures on the Leas including a 14ft compass and a viewing tower.

Jo Woods, spokeswoman for the community partnership, said: “The artists have created an innovative and highly popular selection of work which has captured the interest and approval of people strolling along the proms.”

North Norfolk District Council has also supported the project.
