Set just a few miles inland from the beautiful North Norfolk coast, the village of Docking is one of the highest points in Norfolk. Due to its relatively high altitude (for Norfolk!) it was without a water supply until 1760, hence being known historically as “Dry Docking”.
Other historical moments include the RAF airfield that was used during World War II as a satellite airfield of RAF Coastal Command and was home to several Royal Air Force and Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons, and the village also had its own railway station on the line between Kings Lynn and Wells-Next-the-Sea until 1952.
Docking has several useful amenities including a village shop, post office, pub, fish and chip shop, playing field with children’s play area, and every Wednesday there is a local produce market at “Ripper Hall” between 9am-1pm.
Being centrally located allows for easy access to the coast and surrounding villages such as Sedgeford, Hunstanton, Thornham, Brancaster, Stanhoe and Burnham Market. Within these towns/villages you will find plenty of things to keep you amused. With many stunning beaches, wide open spaces, spectacular coastal walks, an abundance of wildlife, award-winning restaurants and plenty of unique, independent shops to discover.
