A village and well loved holiday destination having some superb beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's replacing the olden timber bridge. Heacham is just as well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both South and North Beaches lined with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores in this area are set upon the east banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It's likely approximately 5 millenia since the earliest human settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was most probably not until the 5th century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name of the village is considered to be taken from the title of a local Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. Still another thought is that the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times comprised one hundred and forty three households (rather large for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from about 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she left a son named Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has expanded enormously, and brand new types have been created. Lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.
