A seaside village and popular holiday resort offering some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found 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 roughly 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become known as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, with the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven replacing the old wood bridge. The village remains popular these days as a seaside resort, with both South and North Beaches being peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is most certainly over five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements materialized in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was possibly not till the 5th century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any firm evidence that this is the truth. Another idea is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time contained 143 households (rather big for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still older, dating from approximately 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early years the company has grown dramatically, and fresh types have been created. Lavender is nowadays sold all over the world.
