A popular former children's TV presenter explored some of West Norfolk's most picturesque locations over the weekend as he continued his cycling tour of the country.

Timmy Mallett visited Lynn, Hunstanton and Brancaster on Saturday as he attempts to circumnavigate Britain on his bike, a journey of around 4,000 miles.

The 66-year-old detailed his trip through West Norfolk, which also took in Sandringham, Snettisham, Castle Rising and the Burnhams, on social media, posting pictures of himself by the quay, at Lynn Minster and posing with George Vancouver's statue.

He also expressed his admiration for one famous Lynn resident, the medieval mystic Margery Kempe, as he said: "I'm fascinated by the story of Margery Kempe the 14th-century serial pilgrim.

"Her mental health conditions resonate with today's world."

A keen painter, Mallett was also artistically inspired artistically by the county.

He posted pictures of artworks depicting places such as the Hunstanton cliffs, Walsingham Abbey and Wells.

The broadcaster seemed to have especially enjoyed the Hunstanton cliffs, as he said: "I love the candy striped cliffs of the north Norfolk coast. Good enough to eat. Good enough to paint!"
