A seaside village and well loved holiday resort having some superb beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,700 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the arrival of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven replacing an old wood bridge. The area continues to be well loved these days as a seaside resort, with both South and North Beaches being peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are set upon the east shoreline of The Wash, consequently it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's in all likelihood roughly 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements occurred in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century that the 1st proper village was set up there. The name is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. Still another idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days had 143 households (pretty big for the time) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died 3 years later, however she left a son called Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the business has grown enormously, and brand new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is these days sold all around the world.
