St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a beach resort in Victorian times, mainly because of the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to take the place of the olden wood bridge. Heacham is still popular these days as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beaches lined with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches in this area are set upon the east banks of The Wash, this means it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is certainly around five thousand years since the first human settlements appeared in the region close to Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was more than likely not till the fifth century that the first real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be derived from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. One additional idea is that the name originates from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times supported 143 households (making it quite sizeable for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise.
