St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the old timber bridge. The area is still favoured today as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches in this area are located on the east shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It's very likely over 5 millenia since the 1st human settlers showed up in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was in all probability not until the 5th century when the 1st genuine village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any reliable evidence that this is a fact. An additional thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times included one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest existing building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died three years later, still she produced a son called Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the company has expanded dramatically, and brand new types have been created. Lavender is today exported all around the world.
