A seaside village and well known vacation resort with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,700 people and is perhaps best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The village is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, a result of the coming of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's replacing the ancient wooden bridge. Heacham is still popular today as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are set on the eastern shores of The Wash, this means it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is very likely over five millenia since the first human settlers emerged in the region around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was perhaps not until the 5th century that the earliest real village was established there. The name is quite possibly derived from the name of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence of this. A second thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time had 143 households (quite large for the time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church record the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left behind a son named Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the business has expanded substantially, and brand new types have been produced. The lavender is today sold all over the world.

The village can be entered via the the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 5 kilometres (3 miles) from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
