A village and well loved holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of around five thousand people and is probably most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, with the opening of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 taking the place of an old wooden bridge. The village is still well-liked these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores in this area are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

History of Heacham: It is possibly over 5 millenia since the first settlers arrived in the area close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was very likely not till the 5th century that the 1st actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is true. An additional explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time comprised one hundred and forty three households (quite large for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of producing and processing of lavender and related products.

The lavender is these days exported all over the world.
