West Norfolk beauty spots are always a magnet for  both local people and visitors from outside the county, writes editor Sue Irving.

The latest lockdown message is “stay home and stay local”, but many people are travelling a few miles – and more in some cases – for their daily allowed exercise, particularly at weekends when the weather is bright.

While these attractions are arguably “local” to us in West Norfolk, the guidance states travel is only acceptable when journeys are essential.

Local police superintendent Lou Provart has urged us all to follow our “moral compass” and walk from our front doors around our towns and villages in a bid to help beat the virus, protect the NHS, ourselves and our loved ones.

But people are asking what is the maximum they can travel to exercise, if at all, and there have been calls nationally for more clarification.

What do you think about visiting West Norfolk beauty spots at this challenging time?

Has walking/cycling from home opened up a whole new exercise experience for you?
