A coastal village and well known vacation destination boasting some superb beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become fashionable as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, due to the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of an oudated wooden bridge. The area is just as favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beaches being peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches here are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, which means it's one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is possibly over 5 millenia since the first human settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name is quite possibly taken from the title of a Norman Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any compelling evidence that this is the truth. Another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time had one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for this time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church recount the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she passed away three years later, though she left a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the company has expanded greatly, and fresh new varieties have been produced. The lavender is currently sold all around the world.

The village can be entered from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
