Docking Station

and the West Norfolk Junction Railway


The West Norfolk Junction Railway ran from Heacham to Wells-next-the-Sea, passing through five intermediate stations, the second of which was Docking. Railway enthusiasts will love this booklet, but so will everyone who’s interested in the effect the railway had on local communities.

Docking Heritage Group would like to thank CTM Harpley Engineering for their generous help with the printing of this booklet.

Path to Courage

Life and Duty of an RAF Pilot

Michael Strutt was a member of our Heritage Group and produced the Oral History pieces which can be consulted in the Heritage Room. The executors of his estate have kindly donated copies of his book to be sold in aid of the Heritage Group.

Squadron Leader Ernest Deverill DFC and Bar, AFC, DFM married a Docking farmer’s daughter and is buried in Docking churchyard. Path to Courage tells the story of his life and daring exploits as a WW2 pilot with 97 Squadron in Bomber Command.

“The book paints a picture of day-to-day village life as well as Ernest’s dangerous missions over continental Europe. Time and time again, he defied enemy onslaught, mechanical problems and atrocious weather, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Distinguished Flying Medal and the Air Force Cross.” Norfolk Magazine, November 2022.

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.
