A coastal village and well known vacation resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around five thousand occupants and is probably most famous for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a beach resort in the 19th century, right after the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to replace an old wooden bridge. The village still is popular today as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It's in all probability over five thousand yrs since the initial human settlers colonized in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was most likely not till the 5th century that the 1st actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no reliable evidence that this is true. An additional possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then comprised 143 households (rather big for the times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by 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 most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has evolved dramatically, and brand new varieties have been reared. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
