The pilot reported that during the approach he concentrated on clearing the power cables at the threshold end of Runway 26 at Cromer, which has an uphill slope and a displaced threshold. He stated that he reduced the engine power too soon, with the result that the aircraft landed heavily, damaging the left landing gear leg. The wind at the time was from 210° at approximately 15 kt.
