A coastal village and well known holiday destination beside some superb beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 5,000 people and is perhaps best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, with the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to replace the dated wooden bridge. The area still is popular these days as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are located on the east shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's History: It is perhaps around five thousand yrs since the first settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was more than likely not until the fifth century that the earliest proper village was established there. The name is possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. An additional explanation is, the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment consisted of 143 households (making it rather sizeable for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth even older, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early days the enterprise has grown considerably, and new types have been produced. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22 kilometres) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
