A village and popular vacation resort boasting some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get known as a seaside resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace an outmoded wood bridge. The village still is well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, meaning it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is most likely approximately 5,000 yrs since the earliest settlements took place in the region near Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was almost certainly not till the 5th century that the first genuine village was established there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. One additional explanation is that the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage supported one hundred and forty three households (quite substantial for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest this area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up 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 oldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church remind visitors of the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she left behind a son called Tom, who later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. Four years later there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has grown enormously, and different varieties have been raised. Lavender is today exported all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
