A seaside village and well loved holiday destination offering some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's in order to replace the old timber bridge. The area is just as popular today as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach replete with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are positioned upon the eastern banks of The Wash, consequently it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's undoubtedly roughly 5,000 yrs since the earliest settlers emerged in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the first actual village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is a fact. One more idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of 143 households (making it rather substantial for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died three years later, still she produced a son called Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the company has grown greatly, and different types have been reared. Lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.
