A seaside village and well loved vacation resort having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is perhaps best known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, with the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an older wooden bridge. The area is just as well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The beaches at this point are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is very likely around five thousand years since the first settlements occurred in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was in all likelihood not until the fifth century that the 1st proper village was established there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any reliable evidence that this is the truth. The other idea is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage incorporated one hundred and forty three households (quite big for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually still older, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church recount the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the business has expanded substantially, and brand new types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.

The village can be go to by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
