A road will be closed for essential tree surgery near a village tourism spot for five days.
Mill Lane at Shotesham Ford will be shut from the A140 junction to Knights Lane from 7am on Monday, July 19 until 5pm on Friday, July 23.
There will be no access for vehicles, cyclists, horse riders or pedestrians during this period while tree maintenance work is carried out.
The work will involve four aAsh trees that are suffering from ash dieback, two common alder that have partially died, and a large horse chestnut that is suffering from severe decay to its truck and roots and is structurally unsafe.
Norfolk County Council's public notice states the work is vital to ensure the road can be used safely.
