A coastal village and well loved holiday destination boasting some exceptional beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 4,707 people and is possibly most famous for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get well liked as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the arrival of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an old timber bridge. The area continues to be well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are positioned upon the eastern banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is likely approximately 5,000 yrs since the initial settlements occurred in the region close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was quite possibly not till the fifth century when the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence of this. The other possibility is that the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times comprised one hundred and forty three households (pretty big for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was ruled by two 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 oldest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be over 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early days the enterprise has grown appreciably, and brand new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is today exported all around the globe.
