Sadler's Wood first received the accolade in 2012 and, despite just missing out last year, it has re-claimed its place.

Virginia Gay, North Norfolk District Council's portfolio holder for culture and wellbeing, said: "Our woodlands and green spaces mean so much to everyone and these awards celebrate the dedication that goes into maintaining them to such a high standard."

The international award, organised by Keep Britain Tidy, rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.
