The large figure is on top of the number of regular visitors who visited the museum and working farm in 2008.

Now, with an extensive programme of events for 2009, staff at Breckland's most popular tourist attraction are hoping to attract even more people in the coming year.

Events co-ordinator Alison Tebbit said: 'It was a very good year and are hoping to repeat the success this year.
