A village and well loved holiday destination having some superb beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,700 inhabitants and is possibly most widely known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also widely known for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 to replace an ancient wood bridge. The village remains well loved today as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are placed upon the eastern coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham: It's most likely around five millenia since the earliest settlers showed up in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Human settlement remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was most likely not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is true. A further possibility is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (making it pretty large for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet within the church tell of the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the business has expanded appreciably, and unique types have been produced. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.
