A village and popular vacation resort alongside some superb beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also widely known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, just after the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's replacing the aged timber bridge. The village is still well-liked today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines here are situated on the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is undoubtedly over five millenia since the 1st human settlers colonized in the area surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was in all probability not until the fifth century that the earliest real village was established there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. A different explanation is that the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then consisted of 143 households (making it fairly large for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. 4 years later there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the venture has evolved substantially, and new types have been created. The lavender is now exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
