For three long years Oliver Mann has been working to restore his ancient orchard in Marshland St James.

Now he hopes to reap the rewards and save similar sites with an ambitious new business venture, Marshland Cider:

The former accountant is busy establishing his own craft cider press from scratch after the project was granted planning permission by West Norfolk Council last month.

He hopes to begin supplying pubs, restaurants and shops next summer, as well as selling his artisan cider over the internet.
