A village and popular holiday destination having some fine beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 4,707 occupants and is probably best known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get popular as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of an older wood bridge. Heacham is still well-liked nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South and North Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's in all likelihood roughly 5 millenia since the 1st settlements manifested in the region near Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. A second explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times supported 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is in truth even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church recount the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise.

Lavender is now exported all around the world.
