A village and well known vacation destination with some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around four thousand seven hundred people and is possibly most commonly known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a coastal resort in the 19th century, because of the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's taking the place of the older timber bridge. The village still is well loved today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed on the east coast of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's undoubtedly around 5 millenia since the earliest settlers arrived in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was most likely not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is true. One more theory is that the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time included 143 households (pretty substantial for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet within the church tell of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, who later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since then the company has grown greatly, and different varieties have been bred. The lavender is currently sold all around the world.

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