There is no article on Buckenham-near-Tofts in Wikipedia, but it appears in their list of "lost settlements" of Norfolk. It was part of an area acquired by the British Army as a training area during World War II and remains in their hands to the present. See the Stanford Training Area article in Wikipedia.
A Vision of Britain through Time states that Buckenham Tofts is the preferred name of the hamlet.
