A coastal village and well loved vacation destination featuring some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 4,707 occupants and is possibly most famous for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, with the opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an older wooden bridge. Heacham is just as popular today as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores at Heacham are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's most certainly over five thousand yrs since the earliest settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was very likely not until the 5th century that the earliest proper village was founded there. The name is possibly derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no compelling evidence that this is a fact. A second thought is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it quite substantial for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards 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 (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the business has expanded significantly, and unique types have been produced. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.

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