A seaside village and popular vacation destination alongside some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around five thousand occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a sea side resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an oudated wood bridge. Heacham is still well-liked these days as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are situated on the east coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's in all probability around five millenia since the initial settlers emerged in the region surrounding Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was quite likely not till the fifth century when the first real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is the truth. One additional idea is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment was made up of one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she left a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the venture has evolved greatly, and fresh new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is now exported all around the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
