A coastal village and well loved holiday resort featuring some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around 5,000 occupants and is probably best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, after the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of an olden wooden bridge. The area is just as well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beach being lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, which means it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It's perhaps roughly 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was most probably not till the 5th century when the first actual village was set up there. The name is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. The other explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then supported 143 households (quite big for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church recall the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son named Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the business has expanded enormously, and new types have been reared. Lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.
