A coastal village and popular vacation destination adjacent to some fantastic beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,707 occupants and is probably best known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a beach resort in the 19th century, due to the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's to replace the ancient wood bridge. The village is still popular today as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches at Heacham are situated on the eastern shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's probably over five thousand yrs since the 1st settlers arrived in the vicinity close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement continued there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was very likely not till the fifth century that the 1st true village was founded there. The name is believed to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any firm evidence of this. A second idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time incorporated 143 households (making it quite big for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even older than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church recall the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually 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 nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the company has expanded appreciably, and brand new varieties have been raised. Lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
