A coastal village and popular holiday destination boasting some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of around 4,707 people and is possibly most famous for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become well liked as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, a result of the arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's in order to replace an ancient wood bridge. The village is just as well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach being replete with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas at this point are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, which means it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's perhaps approximately five thousand yrs since the 1st settlers showed up in the vicinity near Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was very likely not till the 5th century when the earliest actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence of this. A second idea is, the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage supported one hundred and forty three households (making it rather substantial for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is in truth even older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church record the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, still she left behind a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there were 100 acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and unique varieties have been raised. Lavender is now exported all around the globe.
