A village and well loved vacation resort having some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, following the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace an old wood bridge. The area still is favoured today as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are placed on the east shoreline of The Wash, which means it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It's undoubtedly around five thousand years since the first settlements manifested in the vicinity near Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was most likely not till the 5th century when the first proper village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is reported to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. One more theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time supported 143 households (making it quite big for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son named Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved significantly, and newer types have been propagated. The lavender is currently sold all over the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
