A village and popular vacation resort featuring some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is possibly most widely known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a seaside resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of opening of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties to replace an oudated timber bridge. The village remains popular these days as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach lined with caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are positioned upon the eastern coast of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is likely over 5,000 yrs since the earliest settlers showed up in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was likely not till the fifth century that the first real village was established there. The name is possibly taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence that this is the truth. An extra explanation is that the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite substantial for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about 1100, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she produced a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the business has expanded greatly, and fresh types have been bred. The lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.
