A History of the Village and Families of Hickling, Norfolk, England.

This site was developed specifically to enable access to some of the information and images gathered by the

Hickling Local History Group

in the years from its formation in the millennium year 2000 until the 31st of December 2009 when the group was dissolved.


The "Navigation Sidebar" on the left of this and all subsequent pages, provides indexed "links" that will enable the reader to navigate directly to the site pages they are interested in.

Many of those pages displayed on the navigation panel contain links to documents produced by the Hickling Local History Group, its members and others. They contain a wealth of information on the Village and its people, and are particularly valuable to anyone researching family history.
