Hundreds of Good Friday worshippers swapped church pews for spectacular views, when they marched to the top of highest natural point in Norfolk as part of Sheringham's annual Easter Walk of Witness.
Organised by Sheringham Churches Together, the event, which is a tradition stretching back nearly 30 years in the town, saw a seven-strong group of volunteers carry a 12ft-tall wooden cross through the town centre to the top of 207-feet-high Beeston Hill, where Lighthouse Church pastor Rev Ian Savory led a service with the support of other local church leaders.
The cross, which had to be replaced some years ago after a previous model was thrown over the cliffs by vandals, will stay at the top of the hill over the Easter period.
Vicar of Sheringham Rev Christian Heycocks, who led a service at St Peter's Church before the procession, said he had been delighted to see so many people making the journey to the top of the hill.
He added: 'Good Friday is an opportunity for us to gather together to remember Jesus's love and God's sacrifice to save us from our sins.'
