A seaside village and well loved holiday destination boasting some great beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of about 5,000 people and is probably best known for its historic associations with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally well regarded for its fields of lavender, grown 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 popular as a tourist resort in the time of the Victorians, with the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of an old timber bridge. Heacham still is popular these days as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are set on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's perhaps approximately 5 millenia since the earliest settlers emerged in the vicinity around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of that. Human settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was more than likely not until the fifth century that the earliest actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Norman Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. Yet another idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (rather substantial for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, though she left a son named Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early years the business has grown greatly, and brand new varieties have been raised. Lavender is now sold all over the world.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
