A project designed to highlight the charms of the Tiffey Valley has earned an award from the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).
The Tiffey Trails project was set up in 2005 by the Wymondham Arts Forum to use the arts to celebrate the heritage and beauty of the valley.
At one point the Tiffey, a small tributary of the River Yare, runs just a few hundred yards of Wymondham town centre.
During the three-year project a footpath system was opened to visitors and decorated with wood carvings, benches, interpretation boards and waymarkers.
