A seaside village and well loved vacation destination with some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 5,000 inhabitants and is probably best known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 replacing an old timber bridge. The village still is popular these days as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's most likely around five thousand yrs since the earliest settlements manifested in the vicinity around Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the first real village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence that this is true. Another theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times contained one hundred and forty three households (making it quite big for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient existing building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet in the church outline the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, but she left behind a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has grown significantly, and unique varieties have been created. Lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
