Hethersett, Sri Lanka
Villagers in Hethersett, Norfolk, England, are being invited to take a cut price holiday break in Sri Lanka - at the tropical Hethersett tea plantation, 5,500 miles from home.
The invitation comes after villagers discovered a tea factory founded by their ancestors hundreds of years ago had been converted into a luxury hotel.
The hotel is set in the heart of Hethersett estate and even boasts a Hethersett bar.
Colin Wilson, chairman of Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club, stumbled across the hidden link when he received a letter telling him about the hotel.
The abandoned factory was discovered by hotel director Gaurin Wickremasinghe, who converted it into a hotel two years ago. He is now hoping to meet up with villagers from Hethersett in Norfolk.
He discovered that the plantation was founded by William Flowerdew, a former, Hethersett resident, who left Norfolk around 1879.
He is reputed to have set up the plantation and named it after his home village, but then returned to England by 1881.
He has offered anyone with a Hethersett address a 20 per cent discount on accommodation at the Tea Factory Hotel.
