A village and well known holiday destination offering some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its fields of lavender, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a tourist resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties to replace an oudated timber bridge. Heacham is just as well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The seashores here are placed on the easterly banks of The Wash, this means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's possibly over 5,000 yrs since the initial settlers showed up in the vicinity near Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was in all probability not till the fifth century when the 1st genuine village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any reliable evidence of this. One more idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage was made up of 143 households (fairly substantial for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church recall the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she gave birth to a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since then the venture has expanded significantly, and different varieties have been created. The lavender is today sold all throughout the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 3 miles from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
