A seaside village and well loved holiday destination featuring some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 5,000 occupants and is possibly most recognized for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its lavender fields, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a tourist resort in Victorian times, mainly because of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an ancient wooden bridge. Heacham still is popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches here are set on the east banks of The Wash, consequently it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It is quite likely over five millenia since the earliest settlers emerged in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was most likely not until the 5th century that the first real village was founded there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any strong evidence of this. A further explanation is, the name comes from the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then incorporated 143 households (making it pretty big for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was ruled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet within the church recall the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the enterprise has evolved dramatically, and fresh new varieties have been reared. Lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
