Bidders seeking to buy a failed flagship private psychiatric hospital will be having their offers explored this week.
Cawston Park closed late last year, along with a sister unit at Kelling Park, after owners Chancellor Care went into administration.
Potential buyers have been asked to table their bids to agents Savills, where Ben Guest said they had been encouraged by the levels of interest, particularly from the care sector.
Offers for the properties, together and separately, were due in on Friday and would be sifted through over the coming days in the hope of progressing sales.

Cawston Park opened in 2003 to help people with complex psychiatric needs and later added a state-of-the-art doughnut-shaped lodge building in its 115 acres of grounds that used to be Cawston College independent school near Aylsham.
But it crashed after a �2.5m fraud case, bought by a disgruntled former worker, even though bosses were cleared of any wrong-doing. Administrators were called in and, after failing to find buyers for the business, put the properties on the market.
