A coastal village and well loved vacation destination alongside some great beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 5,000 occupants and is perhaps best known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its fields of lavender, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a seaside resort in the nineteenth century, with the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace the old timber bridge. The area remains well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches replete with caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are found on the east shores of The Wash, which means it's one of few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is most probably roughly 5 millenia since the earliest settlers arrived in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of that. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was perhaps not until the fifth century that the first actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any strong evidence that this is true. A further explanation is, the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days supported one hundred and forty three households (rather large for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the region was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recount the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, nonetheless she provided John with a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the goal of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the venture has evolved appreciably, and brand new varieties have been bred. The lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is around three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
