Cockley Cley is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It covers an area of 17.94 km2 (6.93 sq mi) and had a population of 138 in 58 households in the 2001 census. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of Breckland.
Its church, All Saints, is one of 124 existing round-tower churches in Norfolk. It was restored in 1866–88 by diocesan architect Richard Phipson. In 1991 part of the tower collapsed. The interior was not harmed and still exhibits the Victorian idea of how a church should look. The north arcade is 14th century, and it has been copied for the south arcade.
