Snettisham villagers and friends marked the end of a difficult period by walking a newly designated beach footpath.

More than 60 people took part in an anniversary walk along the path on Monday. Last spring bank holiday, villagers staged a protest walk in the run-up to a public inquiry to decide ownership of the land, which some beach property owners claimed was private.

Chairman Eric Langford said: “It was a great feeling to walk the path on Monday knowing five years of hard work had paid off.” Photo: mlnf15pm05040
