A village and well known vacation resort with some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become well liked as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, immediately after the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to take the place of an old wooden bridge. Heacham remains well loved these days as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beaches being dotted with caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, therefore it's one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's certainly approximately 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Human settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was possibly not until the fifth century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. A different explanation is, the name comes from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for the times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church recall the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the business has grown appreciably, and newer varieties have been bred. The lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
