A village and popular vacation resort featuring some great beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly four thousand seven hundred people and is probably most widely known for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a beach resort in the 19th century, as a consequence of arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the older wood bridge. The area still is well-liked these days as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas here are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, consequently it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is possibly around 5 millenia since the earliest human settlers colonized in the area near Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was most probably not until the 5th century when the earliest proper village was established there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is a fact. The other explanation is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time had one hundred and forty three households (rather large for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church recall the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, still she provided John with a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early days the company has grown dramatically, and fresh new types have been created. The lavender is currently sold all around the world.
