A village and popular vacation resort with some terrific beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,707 inhabitants and is possibly best known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, a result of the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace the olden wood bridge. The village is just as well-liked nowadays as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines here are placed on the east banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is most certainly around five thousand years since the first human settlements appeared in the region surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was quite possibly not until the 5th century when the first actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. A further theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then comprised 143 households (making it fairly substantial for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the enterprise has evolved considerably, and fresh varieties have been created. Lavender is these days exported all around the world.

The village can be entered from the the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
