What's on


SHARP Archaeological Festival

The Heritage Group had a stand at the SHARP Archaeological Festival in Sedgeford on July 21st. We took along a selection of finds from our Community Digs and were very pleased to get a mystery object identified. Click here to find out what it is.


VOICES FROM DOCKING – recollections of a Norfolk village is the Heritage Group’s latest publication. Find out more and purchase a copy on our Sales and Publications page.


We had a brilliant local history weekend this year with over 250 paying visitors plus members. We sold £290 worth of new books and our DVDs and made a good profit from the raffle. Click here to see the local press report.

Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come and help and visit the exhibition – we had some interesting queries and conversations and most of us have learnt something new about the village and the area.



Docking Heritage Group have created another way to allow people to share their photographs, stories and memories by setting up a new Facebook group called ‘Docking Community Archive’. For those with a Facebook account simply click on the icon on the left, join the group and begin sharing your Docking related memories.


Docking Heritage Group will be holding another Village Dig during the first weekend of August. We shall be digging in the same place as last two years for the final time.

If you fancy a couple of days of digging, sieving, washing finds and general fun and banter let us know. Although its a fun day we do work to strict test pitting guidelines and all our finds are catalogued and marked on the NHR map. You do need to be fairly fit as all the tasks are strenuous, even laying on the ground scraping soil.

We have been very lucky in the past and the weather has never been so bad we have had to abandon the dig but rest assured we do not dig in adverse conditions.
You can contact us through the website or via our Facebook page.
