A coastal village and well known holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the 19th century, due to the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The area remains well-liked these days as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas here are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning 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 perhaps approximately five thousand yrs since the initial settlers arrived in the vicinity around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was possibly not till the 5th century when the first proper village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the title of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any firm evidence of this. Another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage consisted of one hundred and forty three households (fairly large for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from about 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church outline the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away three years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the business has evolved dramatically, and new types have been produced. The lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
