What's on



Once again we are organising a Local History Fair. The event will take place on Sunday May 5th and Monday 6th May 2019 in the Ripper Hall, High Street, Docking from 10-4pm on both days.

We hope to  have many other local organisations joining us for the weekend where they’ll be showcasing their own research and activities so this year not only can you find out about the history of Docking through a variety of displays and photographs but from many other places in West Norfolk as well.

We look forward to welcoming lots of visitors and friends both old and new.



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.
