A coastal village and popular holiday destination having some awesome beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly five thousand people and is probably best known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, after the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an olden wood bridge. The area continues to be popular today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches at this point are set on the eastern shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

History of Heacham: It's perhaps around 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlers colonized in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was possibly not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was established there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. An additional thought is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty big for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and also a tablet within the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, however she provided John with a son, Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the enterprise has evolved appreciably, and new types have been reared. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
