A coastal village and popular vacation destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of around 4,707 inhabitants and is probably best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, immediately after the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an ancient wooden bridge. Heacham is still well-liked these days as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, consequently it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's almost certainly roughly 5,000 yrs since the first settlements manifested in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was quite possibly not till the fifth century that the 1st proper village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is the truth. An additional possibility is that the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for the time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church tell of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, nonetheless she provided John with a son called Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the business has expanded dramatically, and unique types have been created. The lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about 3 miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
