The picture shows the position of the grass airfield south of Sunderland House, a farmhouse that was bombed and destroyed in May 1941 and rebuilt at the end of the war. Most of the RAF Docking's domestic accommodation and communal facilities were situated remotely from the airfield along the Docking to Brancaster road shown to the west of the airfield. Most of The technical facilities were situated close to Sunderland House. A railway line, a branch line between Heacham and Wells, and a minor road to Burnham Market passed along the southern perimeter of the airfield.
