A village and well known vacation destination featuring some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's replacing an ancient timber bridge. Heacham is just as favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The seashores here are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, which means it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is almost certainly more than 5,000 years since the earliest settlements occurred in the area around Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was in all probability not until the fifth century when the first true village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any firm evidence that this is true. A further explanation is, the name originates from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage comprised 143 households (rather big for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she gave birth to a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has evolved enormously, and fresh new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is currently exported all around the globe.

The village can be go to via the the A149 and the B1454, it is about 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
