A village and popular holiday destination boasting some wonderful beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of approximately 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, a result of the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an olden timber bridge. The area is just as well loved today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas here are set on the eastern shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is quite possibly more than 5,000 years since the first human settlers colonized in the area around Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was very likely not till the 5th century that the earliest proper village was set up there. The name is believed to be derived from the name of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no compelling evidence that this is true. Still another theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time included one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the company has grown enormously, and fresh varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
