A coastal village and well loved vacation resort next to some superb beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get popular as a seaside resort in Victorian times, due to the arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's in order to replace an old wood bridge. Heacham is still favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is quite likely approximately five thousand yrs since the first settlers turned up in the area close to Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the earliest actual village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Another possibility is that the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards 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 surviving building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even older, dating from about 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church recount the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the company has evolved substantially, and brand new varieties have been raised. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.

The village can be go to by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
