Great Hockham - a Memory of Great Hockham.

We moved to Hockham when I was 4 in 1964. My Father Douglas Oliver was the landlord of the Red Lion up until it closed in 1971 leaving just the Eagle to play darts and socialise in. Dad bought the Red Lion and converted it as a family home. Great memories of growing up in the village and being in doctrinated to local village life. I joined the Army in 1975 and it was then that Mum and Dad moved th Watton where dad remains. Anyone out there remember the era to start the memories rolling.
