A village and well known holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately five thousand people and is possibly most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get well liked as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of an ancient wood bridge. Heacham remains favoured today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are found on the east shoreline of The Wash, which means it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

History of Heacham: It is most probably over five millenia since the initial settlements materialized in the area near Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was probably not till the 5th century that the 1st proper village was set up there. The name is possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. A further theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time comprised one hundred and forty three households (pretty sizeable for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, 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 famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she produced a son, Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the venture has grown substantially, and new varieties have been produced. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
