The skies may have been grey, but that did not stop scores of children from searching for colourfully-wrapped Easter eggs at Dereham Windmill.
The Easter Monday event featured a visit from the Easter Bunny, who handed out chocolate eggs and drinks after two hunts which took place in the afternoon had finished. One hunt was for youngsters aged five and under and other for bigger children aged six and over.
There were also games including 'grab-a-duck' and tombola stalls.
The festive event marked the final public gathering at the windmill before it closes for a re-decoration and re-painting project.
But during the closure, the site's coffee shop will remain open, and the windmill itself will re-open on June 3.
The Grade II-listed windmill was built in 1836. The building was restored by the Dereham Windmill Charity Trustees, Volunteers and Friends and now includes an exhibition space.
