A coastal village and well known vacation resort with some superb beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, soon after the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an old wooden bridge. Heacham remains popular today as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are positioned upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

History of Heacham: It is quite likely over five millenia since the 1st settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this. Settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was possibly not until the 5th century when the earliest proper village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. An additional explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage was made up of 143 households (quite sizeable for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church record the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she produced a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has grown significantly, and newer types have been bred. Lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.
