Brave youngsters from a Fenland scout group got to climb and abseil from the top of the highest tower in Norfolk.
The 1st Sutton Scout Group spent the weekend at Roughton Old Mill, home to First Rural Scouts, near Cromer, as part of the Scout Troop camp.
Assistant scout leader Sam Batten-Brown was “thrilled with everyone’s enthusiasm and their attitude to the adventure”.
The group camped all weekend in the grounds of the Old Mill.
Scout leader, Stacey Mayes, said: “Our group were reassured to hear the rural group had raised an amazing £227,000 to secure the Mill as their new HQ.

The mild weather was also perfect for a hike to the beach where the scouts enjoyed seaside fish and chips and an ice cream.
