Docking is the highest point in Norfolk, and the village stands high above the coastal resorts of Hunstanton and Heacham. Docking church, St Mary, was built during the 15th century and is a large church with some interesting features that include a late medieval font. In 1969 Docking had an unusual UFO sighting. Electrical engineer, Robert Peck was driving through Docking at night when the electrical system in his car failed. He could sense static electricity in the air and then saw a bright blue inverted mushroom shape in the sky that was roughly 400 metres away and 40 metres above the trees. It suddenly disappeared in the direction of Norwich and his car strangely began working again.
