A village and popular holiday destination boasting some fantastic beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore well regarded for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, after the arrival of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace an older wood bridge. Heacham continues to be well loved today as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines here are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, which means it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It is in all probability approximately five millenia since the first human settlers turned up in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was quite likely not till the 5th century when the 1st genuine village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence of this. Still another thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time contained one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet inside the church recall the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left behind a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there would be over one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the company has grown appreciably, and unique types have been propagated. Lavender is these days exported all around the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
