A popular north Norfolk estate plans to close its grounds tomorrow due to a high wind warning from the Met Office.

Holkham Estate said it would close Holkham Park and Lady Anne’s Drive including The Lookout on Wednesday, March 13, but that the Beach Road car park and Wells Beach Cafe would remain open.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind tomorrow, with strong northwesterly winds expected and possible transport disruption.

The service said some short term loss of power and other services was possible. It is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and large waves.

Winds overnight and tomorrow are expected to be in excess of 30-40mph, with gusts at more than 55mph.

There is about a 30pc chance it will rain tomorrow morning in north Norfolk, easing off throughout the day.
