A village and well loved vacation resort featuring some superb beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get popular as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, due to the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the olden wooden bridge. The village still is favoured today as a holiday resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The seashores here are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it's one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is very likely over 5 millenia since the first settlers showed up in the region around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was probably not until the fifth century when the 1st actual village was set up there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no firm evidence that this is true. Yet another thought is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage supported 143 households (rather large for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even older than the church itself, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church outline the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, nonetheless she gave birth to a son called Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the company has expanded greatly, and fresh varieties have been raised. The lavender is now sold all around the globe.
