A village and popular holiday destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is also widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get fashionable as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, after the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to replace the dated timber bridge. The area is still favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are found on the east shoreline of The Wash, which means it is one of very few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's quite likely approximately 5 millenia since the earliest settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was quite likely not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was established there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. An extra idea is, the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then contained 143 households (making it rather big for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church outline the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she left behind a son called Tom, who later went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has grown greatly, and fresh new varieties have been bred. Lavender is these days sold all around the world.

The village can be go to via the the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
