To bring back seawater from the North Sea to Dickleburgh is the challenge for a group of youngsters this weekend.
The Dickleburgh Sea Scouts are starting their charity trek at the Nelson Monument at Yarmouth on Saturday morning.
They will fill up an ancient milk churn with 44 litres (10 gallons) of briny which will then be transferred into smaller containers and taken by yacht, sailing dinghy and canoe along navigable waters to Bungay.
It will then be transported by cyclists to Weybread Lake, which is the scouts dinghy sailing base.

On Sunday younger members of the group will carry the seawater along Waveney Valley footpaths to Langmere Common, where it will be tipped back into the milk churn and towed on a boat and trailer to their Dickleburgh headquarters.
The scouts are sponsored by the litre, and the seawater will be measured and tested by a “judge” to make sure it is genuine!
