A seaside village and well loved vacation destination with some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably best known for its historic associations with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally well known for its lavender fields, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, because of the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an ancient timber bridge. The village is just as well-liked today as a beach resort, with both North and South Beach being lined with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are situated upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is perhaps roughly 5,000 years since the 1st settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was probably not until the fifth century that the earliest real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the name of a local Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no compelling evidence that this is a fact. The other theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time consisted of 143 households (rather large for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she provided John with a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. Four years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early times the venture has expanded appreciably, and new types have been propagated. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
