A village and well known holiday resort offering some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a beach resort in Victorian times, simply because of the coming of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The area still is well-liked today as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are located on the east coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham: It is quite likely roughly 5,000 years since the earliest settlements took place in the area near Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was most likely not till the fifth century when the first actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is believed to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. An additional thought it was named after the local River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then had one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty sizeable for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church outline the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early days the business has grown appreciably, and newer varieties have been bred. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is about 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
