Voices from Docking – recollections of a Norfolk village

Docking Heritage Group was formed in 2007 and recording oral histories from older people in the village, including some who had moved away, became one of our long running projects.

Our intention was always to be able to tell the stories of people who have lived and worked in ways very different to our own 21st-century lives. From a small beginning the project continued when Michael Strutt took on the work of recording using his journalist’s skills.

These accounts and anecdotes reveal the life and spirit of this north Norfolk community over five decades, from before the second world war and including experiences of the war itself. Villagers speak with good humour of how they worked, played and managed their lives, how they marked the passage of the year.

Here therefore is a glimpse of our oral history collection, of a way of life which today is receding from living memory.
