With the region still in the grip of a big freeze, the stunning spikes look set to remain for at least a few more days. 

Mr Fulcher posted his shots on the popular Norfolk Countryside Photos Facebook page, where they have already amassed more than 3,000 likes.

"Every time a lorry goes by it splashes rain water onto the trees and it freezes up," he said. "I've seen similar before, but nothing to this extent. 

"I thought it looked amazing - like something you would see in Narnia - and I had to take some pictures.

"I decided to post them on Facebook for people to see something extraordinary. They're something to put a smile on people's faces, especially in these unprecedented times."
