Taken by Ray Hoogendijk using a drone, the footage gives people the chance to see the ancient motte from a different perspective.

The 12th Century Castle Hill is thought to be the tallest motte in England and is one of only five Iron Age hill forts in Norfolk.

The 360 degrees view shows the 25m high mound and parts of Castle Park and shows how the town has grown around the historic site.

Last year steps were constructed up one side of the mound to help preserve the mound and allow better access to the top.
