A village and popular holiday destination having some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most famous for its historic links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, immediately after the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. Heacham is just as favoured today as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches here are placed upon the east shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is almost certainly more than five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements materialized in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of that. Habitation persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was most probably not until the fifth century that the first real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is the truth. One more theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then supported 143 households (fairly sizeable for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the region was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, but she provided John with a son named Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded enormously, and newer varieties have been reared. The lavender is nowadays sold all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
