A village and well loved holiday resort next to some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, simply because of the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an ancient wood bridge. The village remains well loved today as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's quite possibly roughly 5 millenia since the initial settlers emerged in the area close to Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was perhaps not until the fifth century when the 1st actual village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. The other thought is that the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time comprised 143 households (quite big for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church recount the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, however she left a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the venture has evolved considerably, and new types have been bred. The lavender is these days sold all throughout the world.
