A coastal village and well loved vacation resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly 4,700 people and is perhaps best known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a holiday resort in Victorian times, due to the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the old timber bridge. The village is still popular today as a holiday resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being lined with caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are positioned upon the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is most likely around 5 millenia since the 1st settlements manifested in the region around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was in all probability not till the 5th century when the first actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any reliable evidence of this. A further idea is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then consisted of 143 households (making it pretty large for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient existing structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet within the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the business has grown appreciably, and fresh types have been raised. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.
