A seaside village and well loved holiday destination adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly five thousand people and is possibly most widely known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a seaside resort in the 19th century, after the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties replacing the old wooden bridge. The area is just as well loved nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are situated on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is almost certainly roughly 5,000 years since the first settlers colonized in the vicinity close to Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was perhaps not until the fifth century that the 1st proper village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no reliable evidence that this is true. Yet another theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for this period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than this, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church recount the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she provided John with a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the business has evolved dramatically, and fresh varieties have been produced. Lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.
