A village and well loved vacation resort beside some fantastic beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of about five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of an obsolete wood bridge. Heacham remains well-liked these days as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, consequently it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's in all probability more than 5 millenia since the first human settlers emerged in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was quite likely not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name of the village is supposed to be taken from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence of this. A different theory is, the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time included 143 households (making it pretty large for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early years the venture has expanded greatly, and fresh new types have been reared. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 5km (3 miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
