A village and well loved holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 4,700 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be known as a sea side resort in Victorian times, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the olden timber bridge. The village is just as popular today as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach lined with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at Heacham are situated on the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is most probably approximately 5 millenia since the initial human settlements took place in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was probably not till the fifth century that the first actual village was set up there. The name is possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence that this is a fact. The other thought is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times had one hundred and forty three households (quite big for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the venture has expanded appreciably, and unique types have been reared. Lavender is now sold all throughout the world.
