A village and well loved vacation resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the opening of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an old wood bridge. Heacham is just as favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beaches here are located upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, therefore it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's in all probability around 5,000 years since the earliest settlers colonized in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was in all probability not until the 5th century when the earliest actual village was established there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. Still another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time incorporated one hundred and forty three households (quite large for the times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church recount the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son called Tom, who later on returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has grown enormously, and fresh new types have been raised. The lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.
