A seaside village and well loved holiday destination offering some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, just after the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the old wood bridge. Heacham remains well loved today as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are found upon the east shores of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is certainly roughly 5 millenia since the first settlements manifested in the region near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was quite likely not till the 5th century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no strong evidence of this. Yet another explanation is that the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage contained one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty substantial for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet within the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died three years later, but she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the venture has evolved substantially, and fresh types have been raised. The lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be entered via the the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
