A coastal village and popular holiday destination with some fine beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around five thousand people and is possibly most recognized for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally well known for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, after the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the old wooden bridge. The village is still favoured today as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beach replete with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

A History of Heacham: It is almost certainly approximately 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlers emerged in the vicinity around Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was in all probability not till the 5th century when the earliest proper village was founded there. The name is possibly taken from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. One additional explanation is that the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then consisted of 143 households (fairly big for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church recall the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, still she left behind a son named Tom, who later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the company has evolved substantially, and unique types have been raised. The lavender is now sold all around the world.

The village can be reached via the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
