A village and popular holiday resort adjacent to some terrific beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a holiday resort in the 19th century, because of the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's taking the place of an oudated wood bridge. The village is just as popular nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is most probably approximately 5,000 yrs since the first human settlements manifested in the area near Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was in all probability not until the 5th century that the first real village was set up there. The name is quite possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no solid evidence that this is true. A further thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage consisted of 143 households (fairly substantial for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet within the church outline the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has evolved dramatically, and fresh new types have been propagated. The lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.
