A seaside village and popular holiday resort featuring some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately five thousand people and is possibly most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the opening of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace the olden wood bridge. Heacham is just as well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches lined with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is possibly roughly 5,000 years since the earliest settlements occurred in the region close to Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was likely not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is the truth. Another possibility is, the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (fairly large for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after 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 eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church outline the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she left a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there was destined to be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the enterprise has evolved appreciably, and unique types have been reared. Lavender is today exported all around the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 5 kilometres (3 miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
