A seaside village and popular holiday destination next to some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found 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 approximately 5,000 occupants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, because of the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the old wooden bridge. Heacham continues to be well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is in all likelihood approximately five thousand yrs since the first settlements occurred in the vicinity near Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was very likely not till the fifth century when the earliest genuine village was established there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. The other idea is that the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly substantial for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since then the business has evolved substantially, and unique types have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 5km (3 miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
