Sporle and Long Statton

Sporle (near Norwich) and Long Statton also earn a mention in the 'Treacle Mining Story' When the Political Intelligence Executive set up its underground defence systems in 1903, Sporle and Long Statton were often jokes about. But, any invader, arriving in Norfolk, would have had little to laugh about; not only would they have been disappointed to find no ships or submarines at Long Statton Docks, but close by the Treacle Miners of Sporle (also known in Norfolk as "Treaclies"), a well trained, well armed squad of men, would have given the enemy a very sticky time.
