A seaside village and well loved holiday resort boasting some great beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably best known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace the older timber bridge. The village is still well loved today as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are positioned on the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is quite likely over 5 millenia since the earliest human settlers arrived in the area close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was probably not till the fifth century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a local Norman Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. One more theory is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly large for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church outline the famous 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, nevertheless she produced a son called Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products.

Lavender is these days exported all around the world.
