The Late Rev. John Hocking’s Work

Over a period of some 12 years the late Rev John Hocking and friends built a large fixed 00 gauge layout into the cellar of a house in Fulwood. Following his death and the subsequent sale of the property this layout was threatened with destruction. Fortunately the Society was able to save many of the main scenic sections depicting many actual locations which in time may be made operable again in modular form.

The first 5 photographs show parts of the layout in situ in the cellar of John Hocking’s house. The final one shows the Devon sea front scene – in use for a time at our Club Rooms.
