Norfolk Rocks

Have you heard about this latest craze? Is it happening in your county?  People are painting stones and leaving them in public places to be found and shared, and replaced by their own creations. We found one on a wall by the path to the castle in Castle Acre last week. They have their own Facebook page too. 
Our library was offering a half term workshop in painting!

Our two eldest granddaughters collected some stones from the drive. I varnished them to seal in the acrylic paint and this brightened the colours.


  1. Ah! This explains the painted stone I discovered on our walk at the weekend. It had been left on a dry stone wall near the gate. I have never heard of this trend so had no idea why it was there. Thank you for the explanation. X

  2. Painting stones was popular many years ago too, we did it when I was a Cub Scout leader but not the leaving them all over the place.......I shall be on the lookout

  3. what a charming idea. I remember doing this as a child. A little moment of joy - to find a child's painted stone. lovely

  4. Here in my province this has been going on for the last 6 months if not longer. I have never been lucky enough to find one.

    God bless.

  5. How lovely! I have never heard of this happening in our area but will be on the lookout now :-)

  6. We have a local facebook group for this with over 1500 members - it's very popular. Some people are very creative and talented!
    At the moment we have had lots of 'poppy' rocks - and these have been placed (with the vicar's blessing) on the local war memorial in the churchyard - it's rather attractive :)

  7. I've seen quite a few dotted around especially a long the see front.
