A coastal village and popular holiday destination next to some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,707 occupants and is possibly most widely known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a coastal resort in the 19th century, immediately after the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The village is just as popular today as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beaches replete with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, which means it's one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It's most certainly around 5 millenia since the 1st human settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was more than likely not till the fifth century when the first genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is the truth. Another explanation is, the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, but she gave birth to a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries 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 created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early days the business has expanded appreciably, and fresh varieties have been bred. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.

The village can be go to by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
