A coastal village and well loved vacation destination having some superb beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most famous for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a beach resort in Victorian times, due to the coming of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 in order to replace an old wood bridge. The village continues to be well loved today as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed on the east shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is quite likely around five millenia since the initial settlers showed up in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was almost certainly not till the 5th century when the earliest genuine village was established there. The name is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. Another explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage included 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for the period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she gave birth to a son named Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the business has grown substantially, and unique varieties have been raised. Lavender is today exported all around the globe.
