St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, simply because of the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the aged wooden bridge.

Heacham's History: It's probably roughly 5 millenia since the earliest settlers showed up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence of this. A different explanation is that the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it quite sizeable for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, nonetheless she left a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were 100 acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved significantly, and newer types have been produced. The lavender is these days sold all throughout the world.
