A village and well known vacation destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 5,000 occupants and is possibly best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become known as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of building of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 in order to replace the older wooden bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured today as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are positioned on the eastern banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is probably roughly five millenia since the first human settlers showed up in the vicinity around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was quite possibly not until the fifth century when the 1st genuine village was established there. The name is believed to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence of this. The other theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported 143 households (making it quite substantial for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church record the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she left a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 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 goal of producing and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the enterprise has grown appreciably, and brand new types have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.
