Thetford Town Council has revealed plans to build a fitness zone in Castle Park, near to an existing playground, in Castle Lane.

A host of equipment, including a climbing wall, chest press and a cycle bike, would be installed if the plans sent to Breckland Council are approved.

The equipment is designed by Wicksteed Playgrounds, in Kettering, and is aimed at teenagers aged 14 and over.

Each piece would feature a QR code which can be scanned using a smart phone which would show the user a video about how to use the machine and additional information.

Plaques would also be installed showing information on how to use the equipment.

The park is located next to the town's historic castle mound remains.
