A seaside village and well known holiday resort featuring some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 people and is perhaps most famous for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become known as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, as a consequence of opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of the ancient wood bridge. The area is still favoured these days as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches here are set on the easterly shores of The Wash, which means it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

History of Heacham: It is most likely around five millenia since the 1st settlements materialized in the region close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was likely not until the 5th century when the first genuine village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is a fact. A different explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church recall the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded appreciably, and brand new types have been produced. The lavender is now exported all over the world.
