A seaside village and well known vacation resort next to some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, mainly because of the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's replacing the old wooden bridge. The village continues to be popular nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, therefore it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is perhaps more than five thousand years since the 1st settlers emerged in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was quite likely not till the fifth century when the first real village was established there. The name is perhaps taken from the name of a local Norman Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any reliable evidence that this is the truth. The other possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment had one hundred and forty three households (making it quite sizeable for the period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son named 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 arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. Four years later there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the enterprise has expanded dramatically, and newer types have been reared. Lavender is now exported all throughout the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
