Visit Heacham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Heacham, Norfolk. On the village sign appears the portrait of the Red Indian princess, Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe of Heacham Hall in 1614. (The hall no longer stands.) Though she died at the age of only 22, the princess left a son who settled in Virginia, U.S.A., and founded a line which was to include the wife of President Woodrow Wilson. St Mary's Church has a modern memorial to her, and a monument to Robert Redemayne, d. 1625, the step-father of John Rolfe.
Not far away is Caley Mill, the centre of the main local industry, lavender growing. It is Victorian, but may well stand on the site of a mill mentioned in the Domesday Book. Though inland, on the A149, a road leads to the Wash where there is a beach of pebbles, with sand at low tide.
