Bagthorpe Hall opened to visitors on Sunday as part of the National Open Garden Scheme, which raises money for charities.

Visitors were able to enjoy a circular walk through woodland covered with snowdrops in the grounds  of the property, near Bircham.

The scheme supports a host of charities and last year, Norfolk open events raised more than £112,878 to help charities including Parkinson’s UK and Mind.
