A village and well loved vacation resort with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably best known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, simply because of the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the old wood bridge. The village is just as well loved nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's probably around 5 millenia since the initial settlers emerged in the vicinity around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was almost certainly not until the 5th century when the first genuine village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence of this. Another idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for this time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet in the church recall the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died three years later, however she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the company has expanded dramatically, and newer types have been propagated. Lavender is now sold all around the world.
