A seaside village and well known holiday destination with some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately five thousand people and is perhaps best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, just after the coming of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's to replace the older wooden bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are placed on the east banks of The Wash, this means it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is in all likelihood around five millenia since the initial settlements took place in the region surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation continued there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was most probably not until the 5th century that the earliest true village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. An extra thought is that the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported 143 households (fairly sizeable for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. Four years later there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the venture has grown significantly, and different types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.
