A village and well known holiday destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a coastal resort in Victorian times, mainly because of the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 replacing the olden wood bridge. Heacham still is well loved these days as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are located upon the eastern banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is very likely more than 5,000 years since the first human settlers turned up in the area near Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was probably not until the 5th century when the first true village was set up there. The name of the village is reported to be taken from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any reliable evidence of this. One more idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days had one hundred and forty three households (rather large for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church record the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away three years later, however she produced a son called Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early times the business has evolved significantly, and unique types have been reared. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.
