This was the Winterton to Hemsby road being searched for abandoned cars after a sharp snowfall caused havoc in Norfolk in mid-January 1959.

Just one of the pictures on this page and concentrated on the village of Winterton. All the photos are from our archives.

A couple of pictures are undated – the pretty thatched cottages and the one of R J King General Stores. Can anyone help?

The Winterton church picture is dates April 1955.

Hope these photos bring back memories, or are of interest, perhaps to new villagers.

Any information about the undated pictures can be sent to anne.edwards:@archant.co.uk
