A village and well loved vacation destination featuring some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about five thousand occupants and is possibly most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well known for its lavender fields, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a sea side resort in Victorian times, because of the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the obsolete wooden bridge. The area continues to be favoured today as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is undoubtedly around five thousand yrs since the 1st settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was most probably not till the fifth century that the earliest proper village was set up there. The name of the village is considered to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. A further theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment supported 143 households (making it pretty sizeable for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from about 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded dramatically, and fresh varieties have been produced. The lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
