A village and well known holiday destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about 5,000 occupants and is probably best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, due to the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's to replace an ancient wooden bridge. The village continues to be popular today as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, which means it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's quite likely around five millenia since the initial settlers arrived in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Human settlement persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was very likely not until the fifth century when the 1st real village was established there. The name is quite possibly taken from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no compelling evidence that this is true. An additional thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time was made up of 143 households (quite big for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church outline the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. 4 years later there were 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the venture has expanded dramatically, and brand new varieties have been reared. Lavender is today exported all around the world.
