A village and well known holiday resort having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is perhaps best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a tourist resort in the 19th century, after the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing the old wood bridge. The area is still popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines in this area are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is more than likely around 5,000 yrs since the initial human settlers arrived in the area surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the first true village was founded there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is true. An additional theory is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment included 143 households (rather sizeable for the time) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. 4 years later there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Since then the enterprise has grown greatly, and unique types have been produced. The lavender is now sold all around the world.

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