More than 70 houses have signed up to take part in North Walsham's first mass yard sale in many years. 

North Walsham Play is hosting the Sunday, July 3 sale starting at 9am.

Matthew Smith, trustee of the charity, said: "We really hope the town will get behind this event, grab some amazing bargains and visit parts of the town they might have not been to before."

Maps for £1 will be available from June 27 online at or from Broadland Travel and North Walsham Community Shop.

Households wanting to take part can register by Friday, June 24 via or by calling 01692 405796. It costs £3 to join in and be included on the map.

Maps will be available from 46 Hall Lane on the day of the sale. 

Proceeds will be put towards new play equipment for Woodville Play Park and North Walsham Memorial Park.
