A seaside village and well known vacation resort next to some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 5,000 people and is perhaps best known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become popular as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, due to the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of an older wood bridge. The area is just as well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beaches being dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the east shores of The Wash, which means it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is most certainly approximately five millenia since the earliest settlements appeared in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the earliest proper village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no firm evidence that this is a fact. One additional explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times incorporated 143 households (pretty sizeable for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church recall the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died three years later, though she left a son, Tom, who later went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the business has expanded enormously, and unique varieties have been bred. Lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
