A coastal village and well known vacation resort with some fantastic beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of around five thousand occupants and is possibly best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a seaside resort in the nineteenth century, a result of the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to take the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham is just as well loved nowadays as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is in all probability around 5 millenia since the first settlers arrived in the vicinity close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was possibly not till the fifth century that the 1st proper village was established there. The name of the village is claimed to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. A different possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times had one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty sizeable for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church outline the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the venture has expanded substantially, and brand new varieties have been created. The lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed via the the A149 or the B1454, it is about 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
