Cromer’s iconic lighthouse is being replicated along the coastline for visitors and residents to enjoy.

Following the hugely successful Crab and Lobster festival, the lighthouse trail is still in full swing for the people in and around Cromer and Sheringham to spot.

So we’ve pulled some images of the lighthouses together, to inspire our readers to go out and find them.

But it wouldn’t be a proper mystery trail if we shared all of them, so we’ve included details on where you can find the rest.

Each piece of the festival’s annual trail is sponsored by local businesses and individuals.

Everyone from well-known local artists like Samuel Thomas, Sammy Merry and Dianne Lindsay to schools and nurseries get involved.

The trail leaflet is published around Easter of each year and available at all participating businesses as well as the Tourist Information Centres in both Cromer and Sheringham.

The pieces are then auctioned off in August on Bank Holiday Sunday at our World Crabbing Competition. All proceeds from each auction are donated to local charities and organisations.

The lighthouses will all be auctioned this year on August 26.

There were two different lighthouse sizes available this year.

The large lighthouse is 1 metre high and the smaller lighthouse is 50cm high. The sponsorship fees are £60

(large) and £40 (small).

There will also be voting for the public’s favourite Lighthouse. The winning artists will be announced on Auction Day.
