A village and well known holiday destination having some exceptional beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is probably best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, immediately after the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of the out-of-date timber bridge. The area continues to be well-liked nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines in this area are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

History of Heacham: It is possibly more than five thousand years since the 1st human settlements occurred in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was possibly not until the fifth century that the 1st true village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence of this. An additional possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time supported 143 households (making it fairly big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. Four years later there were 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since then the business has evolved considerably, and fresh varieties have been bred. Lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.

The village can be entered from the the A149 or the B1454, it is around three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
