Fritton Lake, which is part of the Somerleyton Estate on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, first opened its gates for fishing and countryside walks in the summer of 1909.

On Sunday, a special centenary party is being held to mark 100 years since the estate's tenant farmers turned the rural beauty spot into a visitor attraction.

Classic cars and scooters will be at the park alongside birds of prey displays, family entertainment from Irish dancers and majorettes and an Aquasphere ball on the lake.
