GREAT HOCKHAM Great Hockham is a picturesque village with a village green at its centre. The village currently has a primary school (100 pupils) and a popular pub, The Eagle. There is a church, community hall and playing field on the outskirts of the village and there are also a number of nearby campsites. Within walking distance of the village is Thetford Forest, with its numerous walks and trails (including the Pingo Trail) and the Peddars way forms part of the village's western parish boundary. Hockham is well known for the former Breckland author Christopher Bush (1885-1973), who wrote under both his own name and the pseudonym Michael Home. His Breckland novels give an excellent insight into village life at the turn of the 19th century.
