Photos of Elizabeth Cottage Reeves Lane Hockwold, We came here from Essex to this lovely wooden cottage but after several years the wood was getting really old so we decided to rebuild in brick .We still live in Hockwold and we have wonderful memorys of living at the cottage.We believe it had something to do with Ernie Clingo in the days before us .My children grew up there and loved it

A Hockwold Wedding

A couple of wedding photos taken in Hockwold in the early part of the last century and wondered if anybody could name the people with a question mark in the 1931 photo and the 'NOT KNOWNS' in the 1918 photo.
