A coastal village and well known holiday destination boasting some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,707 people and is probably most famous for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a coastal resort in Victorian times, simply because of the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of the older wood bridge. The village still is popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The beach areas in this area are found on the eastern coast of The Wash, this means it is 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.

Heacham's History: It's likely approximately 5,000 years since the earliest human settlers emerged in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was quite possibly not until the 5th century when the first real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any firm evidence that this is true. The other thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage was made up of 143 households (rather large for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even older, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church record the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the company has expanded considerably, and fresh new types have been produced. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.

The village can be reached via the the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
