A village and well loved holiday resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, following the building of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are situated on the easterly shores of The Wash, therefore 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.

Heacham's History: It's undoubtedly over five millenia since the 1st human settlements manifested in the area close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was very likely not until the 5th century when the first real village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence of this. A second possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage incorporated one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty large for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she died three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early years the venture has evolved dramatically, and new types have been bred. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
