A village and well loved holiday resort having some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,707 people and is possibly best known for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore known for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, due to the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the outmoded wooden bridge. The area is still well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The seashores here are set on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It's most certainly more than 5,000 yrs since the initial human settlers emerged in the area surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was most likely not till the 5th century when the first genuine village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a local Norman Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any reliable evidence that this is the truth. A second thought is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for the times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church recall the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died three years later, however she provided John with a son named Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the business has grown enormously, and unique varieties have been propagated. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
