A village and well known holiday destination offering some excellent beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,700 occupants and is perhaps best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 in order to replace the older wooden bridge. The area still is well-liked these days as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are set on the eastern banks of The Wash, therefore it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

History of Heacham: It is likely roughly five millenia since the earliest human settlements took place in the region close to Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement continued there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was likely not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name is believed to be taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence that this is true. The other thought it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days comprised 143 households (making it pretty sizeable for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nonetheless she left behind a son named Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related products. 4 years later there was destined to be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has grown dramatically, and brand new types have been propagated. Lavender is today exported all over the world.

The village can be go to by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is around three miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
