Visitors to Cromer this winter may have noticed the town has been missing a few well-known farmyard faces.

But north Norfolk's animal lovers will be thrilled to hear the town's Bagot goats have returned to their summer grazing spot on the west cliffs.

The four nanny goats and six kids were returned to their familiar cliffside spot, with a view looking onto the pier, on Wednesday, June 5.

"The goats are owned by North Norfolk District Council and they are used both in Cromer and at other locations to manage pasture effectively and at a low cost."

And fans of the goats can even purchase their own mugs, fridge magnets and tea towels from the range of Goats on a Slope merchandise available from the North Norfolk Tourist Information Centre in Cromer.
