A village and well known holiday resort beside some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly five thousand occupants and is possibly most recognized for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a sea side resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of opening of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace the olden wooden bridge. Heacham still is popular today as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan parks.

The shorelines here are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, which means it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is possibly over five thousand years since the 1st human settlers turned up in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was most probably not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence of this. Still another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time had 143 households (making it pretty large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet within the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son called Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and unique types have been raised. Lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
