A village and well loved holiday destination featuring some fantastic beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,707 people and is perhaps most famous for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a tourist resort in the time of the Victorians, mainly because of the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an ancient wood bridge. The area is just as well-liked today as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beach lined with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches at Heacham are situated upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

History of Heacham: It's quite likely roughly five thousand years since the initial settlements manifested in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was quite likely not until the 5th century that the earliest true village was founded there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is a fact. An additional idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times supported one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest this area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in truth still older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church recall the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son named Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has evolved greatly, and fresh new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.
