A new map and interpretive panels are going to spruce up a drab brick shed in Swaffham's town centre.
The town council has agreed to fund the project at a cost of £3,856.80, which includes moving two panels from a display about 10 metres away.
The brick shed is next to the Butter Cross in Market Place, and was installed a couple of months ago as part of the Butter Cross refurbishment.
Town mayor, Colin Houghton, said: 'This is basically a way of making the shed a bit more attractive.
'There's going to be a bit of history and new map, a bit like a tourist information board.'

The shed, which contains equipment used by UK Power Networks, was needed as part of the works which included improving town centre lighting and the electric supply for market traders, as well as providing an electric car charging point.
The issue was discussed at Swaffham Town Council's April monthly meeting.
