A project which saw an historic north Norfolk pub lovingly restored has been nominated for a national award.
Work to modernise The Lord Nelson, in Burnham Thorpe, has been recognised as part of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' (RICS) annual awards.
The redevelopment - carried out by the Holkham Estate, the pub's owner - came out on top in RICS' community benefit category for the East of England.
It means the project will now move forward to the national finals, due to take place in London this October.
RICS said: "The Holkham Estate has taken a very important community asset and reinvested in its long-term future.
"The work has been restorative, although significant investment has been made in extending and modernising the building."
Judges for the awards added: "Not only does the sensitively-restored building celebrate a national and local hero, but it also provides a centrepiece for the local community, businesses and tourism in the area."
