St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the building of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is more than likely roughly 5 millenia since the first settlements appeared in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the earliest actual village was established there.

It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet within the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, nonetheless she provided John with a son named Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.
