A village and well loved vacation resort having some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably most famous for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well known for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of coming of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to replace the ancient timber bridge. Heacham is just as well-liked these days as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores here are placed on the eastern shores of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is in all probability over 5 millenia since the initial settlements occurred in the region close to Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was probably not till the 5th century that the earliest true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is a fact. A further possibility is that the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times had one hundred and forty three households (fairly sizeable for this times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of 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 the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she left behind a son, Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the business has grown dramatically, and different types have been propagated. The lavender is today sold all around the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
