A seaside village and well known vacation destination adjacent to some excellent beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately four thousand seven hundred occupants and is probably most famous for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, after the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the out-of-date wooden bridge. The area continues to be popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores at Heacham are located upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's in all probability more than five millenia since the initial settlers arrived in the region near Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was in all probability not until the fifth century that the first genuine village was established there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. One additional possibility is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then included 143 households (rather big for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church recount the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, still she left behind a son called Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the business has evolved greatly, and unique types have been produced. The lavender is today exported all over the world.
