The area

Heacham

Heacham is situated on the Northwest Norfolk coast between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton, 2 miles from Hunstanton.

Heacham derives its name from its 12th century overlord Geoffrey de Hecham, and its river, the Hitch. Over the years the word and spelling have become Heacham meaning "The Home in the Thicket". Heacham has existed as a settlement since before the Romans. Indeed, evidence has been found here of passing centuries as far back as the stone age.

Today, Heacham is very much a thriving village community, lit by fabulously unique east coast sunsets and encircled by fragrant purple lavender and scarlet poppy fields.

Visitors and residents alike enjoy the sloping beaches and the soft undulating West Norfolk countryside, which has remained unchanged over time.

The village has a large duck pond, a children's playing field, as well as two sandy beaches.

Facilities

Village shops include a fish and chip shop, newsagent, off-license, butchers and mini-supermarket.

You can walk or cycle along the sea front to Hunstanton, where there are markets, a large Tesco's, swimming pool, fairground, theatre, the Sea Life Centre and other seaside entertainments.

Cycle hire is available in the village.

Wheelchair Hire

Mobility 2000 Ltd (Tel no. 01485 533400) is a shop in Hunstanton which hires out wheelchairs. As of January 2012, the hire cost is £5 daily or £25 for the week. A £25 deposit must be paid, which is held by the shop until the chair is returned. They have a limited number of wheelchairs for hire so early booking is recommended, preferably before the end of May.
