The owner of a crumbling coastal landmark has agreed to meet villagers to discuss concerns it is deteriorating.

There are fears over the state of the Coal Barn at Thornham, near Hunstanton, which is almost all that remains of the village's once bustling harbour.

Thornham Parish Council has "serious concerns" over the structure, whose timbers are rotting, while areas of masonry are also crumbling.

Now the council's latest minutes say its owner has agreed to a meeting after being contacted by the parish clerk about the safety of the building, off Staithe Lane.

They add: "Owner will visit the site to have a look and meet with councillors to discuss the situation."

Plans to turn the Coal Barn into an art studio were given the go-ahead by West Norfolk Council in 2007, but the scheme did not materialise.

In 2014, plans to turn the building into a house were turned down on appeal on the grounds that the property was at risk from flooding.
