A village and well known holiday resort offering some outstanding beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around five thousand occupants and is probably most recognized for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties replacing an obsolete timber bridge. The area is just as well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's possibly approximately 5 millenia since the 1st settlements took place in the vicinity near Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was more than likely not till the 5th century when the earliest real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no solid evidence that this is true. A different thought is, the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time had one hundred and forty three households (rather big for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church outline the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she produced a son, Tom, who later went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since then the company has evolved considerably, and different types have been created. Lavender is now sold all over the world.
