A village and popular holiday destination having some fine beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be popular as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, mainly because of the opening of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 in order to replace an oudated wood bridge. Heacham is still favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being lined with caravan parks.

The beaches here are positioned on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is in all probability over five thousand years since the initial settlements occurred in the region surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was likely not till the 5th century that the earliest actual village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no firm evidence that this is true. One additional possibility is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times comprised 143 households (making it rather sizeable for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the village was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth still older, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and also a tablet inside the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, still she produced a son, Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early days the company has expanded enormously, and unique types have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
