A historic Norfolk garden and a beloved community green space are in the running to be named among the UK's favourite parks.

Priory Gardens in Gorleston and Bodham village playing field have been nominated for the Fields in Trust award, which champions the nation's favourite open spaces.

The historic Priory Gardens, in Church Road, is described as "lovely" and "restful".

On the Fields in Trust website, the person who put forward the park wrote: "The council gardening team do a great job maintaining the flowerbeds.

"The big tree in the middle is my favourite.

"I love the Church Road end of the park too, which is like a mini-woodland under the large shady trees."

It has a children's play area and is home to two football teams and a croquet club.
