A village and popular holiday resort with some excellent beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,707 occupants and is probably most commonly known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a holiday resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the old wooden bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The beaches here are set upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's in all probability over five thousand yrs since the first settlements manifested in the area surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was in all likelihood not until the 5th century that the earliest actual village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. An additional theory is that the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of 143 households (making it quite sizeable for the time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest existing structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet in the church outline the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the business has expanded appreciably, and different types have been bred. Lavender is today sold all over the world.
