A village and well loved holiday resort with some exceptional beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,700 occupants and is possibly best known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The village is also widely known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a holiday resort in Victorian times, simply because of the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an older timber bridge. The area still is popular nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beaches replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are positioned on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It's quite likely more than 5 millenia since the earliest human settlements occurred in the region surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was likely not till the fifth century that the first real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence that this is true. Still another theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time supported one hundred and forty three households (quite big for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the enterprise has expanded considerably, and fresh varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
