A village and well loved holiday destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about five thousand people and is probably best known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a sea side resort in Victorian times, due to the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to replace the old wooden bridge. The area continues to be well loved these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are set on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it's one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It's likely more than 5 millenia since the first settlers showed up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was possibly not till the fifth century when the first genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is the truth. One additional thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times had 143 households (fairly big for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest Heacham was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church recount the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she left a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. Four years later there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has evolved significantly, and fresh types have been bred. The lavender is today exported all around the globe.

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