St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, with the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the ancient wood bridge. The area remains well-liked these days as a seaside resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It's almost certainly roughly five thousand years since the 1st settlers emerged in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was very likely not till the 5th century when the first actual village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any strong evidence of this. An extra theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage consisted of 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in truth still older than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she produced a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the business has grown appreciably, and fresh new types have been reared. Lavender is now sold all throughout the world.
