Garden gates in a village that is home to one of Norfolk's most popular attractions will be thrown open to the public for the first time in nine years.

Thursford's open gardens event takes place on Sunday, June 11 - having not been held since 2014.

Nine gardens, which are within walking distance of each other, are taking part, but there will also be a free ‘lift service’ around the village.

Dogs are also welcome but organisers have asked for them to remain on leads.

A fairground organ will also be playing.

The gardens each have their own description in a guide which visitors can collect on arrival. 

Proceeds from the event will go towards the church's maintenance costs.
