A village and well loved holiday destination with some fine beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get well liked as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to take the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham is still well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is in all probability approximately five millenia since the 1st human settlements materialized in the region around Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was possibly not until the 5th century that the first proper village was established there. The name is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. One more possibility is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days included one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for the period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still older, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died three years later, still she produced a son named Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the company has evolved appreciably, and brand new varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
