Roll of Honour dedicated

On Sunday 10th November 2019 a Roll of Honour for the men of Doxey who fell in the World Wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 was dedicated at Doxey Parish Church by the vicar Martin Strang. On it were the names of 10 men who died as a result of serving in WW1 and one in WW2.

A lot more Photographs

( But not necessarily the right ones !!)

I have added a lot of material to the pages titled "Find your way around". These now include descriptions and pictures (new and old) to give an feel for the character and history of the various areas of Doxey.

The areas are (click to view) :

  • Western - Doxey Fields

  • Northern - around Greensome Lane

  • West Centre - Conway Road, Doxey (W), Mallard Walk

  • East Centre - Manor Park, Doxey (E), The Drive, Castle View

  • Eastern - 'Universal' , Virginia Park
  • However I am limited in the photos that I have available, and I am conscious that the standard of quite a lot of them is quite low. You may well agree; therefore I am asking you to dig out those photographs that you have (or you can take them specially) and share them with this site.

    I will be at the Reunion next Sunday (Oct 20th) and I can scan any originals and let you have them back immediately.

    Any help will be very gratefully received - Thanks !

    Suggestions and corrections will always be (gratefully ?) received.

    A Doxey Silver Wedding - 119 years ago

    Some time ago David Hughes - Chairman of Doxey Parish Council - passed on the above card to the website. West Bank which was built in the late 19th Century is now the Doxey Universal Sports and Social Club. We have researched the Wilson Family that lived there from about 1890 to 1916(?) before retiring to build an ultra-modern concrete garage in Westmoreland.

    The Doxey Website -- What Next ?

    Visitors to this site will have noticed that there have have been virtually no updates for the last two or three years [up to 2019]. With the demise of the Community Association in 2015 the original purpose of the website has gone.

    However as webmaster I am reluctant to close the site and lose the material that has been added over the last 12 years.

    We will make no attempt to keep up to date with local news which is available from many other sources :

    but will provide a site to talk about the History and Geography of the Doxey area.

    With the 'Mallard Walk' estate being built as the first phase of the Burleyfields development, Doxey is continuing to grow and we will continue to provide up-to-date maps of the area (with data from the Open Street Map project).

    If you have any thoughts on what we should be including please email me - webmaster at

    [20th March 2017] Over the next few weeks? (months??, years???) the site is being updated to incorporate some of the web developments that have taken place over the last decade or so. This should, among other things, enable it be more accessible on mobile devices. This involves the webmaster trying to get to grips with new technology.
