A village and well known vacation destination having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,707 people and is perhaps most widely known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, immediately after the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the older timber bridge. The village continues to be popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches at this point are placed upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's quite likely around five millenia since the first settlements manifested in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was possibly not till the fifth century that the earliest real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the title of a local Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence that this is a fact. Still another idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book (1086) as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days contained one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly large for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign and also a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away three years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early days the business has evolved dramatically, and new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all around the globe.
