A village and well known holiday resort featuring some exceptional beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, immediately after the opening of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of the older wooden bridge. The village is still favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are located on the easterly coast of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham: It's possibly around five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlers turned up in the area close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this. Human settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the 1st real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is considered to be derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any strong evidence that this is true. One additional thought is that the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days supported 143 households (making it quite sizeable for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, nonetheless she left a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the business has grown enormously, and fresh new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.
