A village and well known vacation resort having some exceptional beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, after the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the aged timber bridge. The area remains favoured these days as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas here are situated on the easterly banks of The Wash, which means it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's History: It is likely over 5 millenia since the earliest settlers turned up in the region close to Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was likely not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was set up there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence of this. The other possibility is, the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book (1086) as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time included one hundred and forty three households (fairly sizeable for this times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church recall the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, but she left a son named Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded significantly, and brand new types have been created. Lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
