A coastal village and popular holiday destination beside some terrific beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is also known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a tourist resort in Victorian times, due to the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven to replace an ancient wooden bridge. Heacham is still well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It is most probably over five thousand years since the first human settlements occurred in the vicinity near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century when the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence of this. One more explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment had one hundred and forty three households (quite substantial for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest this area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church recall the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she produced a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the venture has evolved enormously, and different types have been raised. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the world.

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