Whether you live in Docking or are just visiting, we thought you might like to learn more about the history of our Village while taking a gentle stroll around it, so we have just published the first in a series of “Docking Heritage Walks” leaflets.
The Walks will start at the Village Green with the Village Sign and Stocks. The first Walk covers the “North and West” of the Village; the second will look at the “East End”.
The “North and West” Walk takes you past the School to the Church, on to the Cage and Pound, then back around the Church to the site of the old Well and Water Tower. There is much of interest along Station Road, including the sites once used by Wagg’s Bakery and Miln Marsters Plant Breeding Centre and Granaries.
The Walk continues as far North as the site of the old Railway Station, with the opportunity to take a break at The Railway Inn! The return route provides views of the open countryside to the East of Docking before passing the Village Hall and arriving back at the Village Green.
Whilst we have distributed printed leaflets locally, you are most welcome to download and print our leaflets in advance of your walks. We hope you enjoy them and welcome your feedback.
