A village and popular holiday destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 4,707 people and is possibly most commonly known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, due to the opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of the ancient wooden bridge. The area remains favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South and North Beaches peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the east coast of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's most probably more than 5 millenia since the first settlements occurred in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of that. Habitation continued there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was possibly not till the fifth century that the 1st actual village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Another thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time had one hundred and forty three households (quite big for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the neighbourhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, 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 Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church record the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she provided John with a son named Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the venture has grown enormously, and fresh types have been nurtured. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.

The village can be entered by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is about 5 kilometres (3 miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
