A village and well loved holiday destination with some outstanding beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately five thousand occupants and is perhaps best known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be popular as a seaside resort in Victorian times, with the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the olden wooden bridge. The village continues to be popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, which means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It is in all probability approximately 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements manifested in the region surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is the truth. A second theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days contained one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet in the church record the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away three years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has evolved enormously, and brand new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
