A village and well known holiday resort offering some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about five thousand occupants and is probably most commonly known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, as a consequence of coming of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the old wood bridge. Heacham is just as popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The seashores here are positioned upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, therefore it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's in all probability around five thousand yrs since the earliest settlements took place in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was very likely not until the 5th century when the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no firm evidence of this. A second thought is that the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time supported 143 households (making it rather large for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she gave birth to a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the company has evolved dramatically, and brand new types have been bred. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the world.
