A coastal village and well known vacation destination with some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get well liked as a seaside resort in Victorian times, right after the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties replacing an redundant wooden bridge. The area is just as favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's possibly over 5 millenia since the first settlers showed up in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was probably not until the fifth century when the 1st proper village was founded there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence of this. An extra theory is that the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time supported 143 households (rather large for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church outline the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved appreciably, and fresh types have been nurtured. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is around three miles from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
