A village and well known holiday resort with some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a tourist resort in Victorian times, because of the building of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to replace an old timber bridge. The village still is popular today as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beach peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's History: It's very likely approximately 5,000 years since the initial settlements occurred in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Human settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was in all probability not till the fifth century when the first genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no solid evidence that this is true. The other theory is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage was made up of 143 households (rather big for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church outline the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who later went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the business has evolved appreciably, and brand new varieties have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
