A village and well known holiday destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of around four thousand seven hundred people and is probably most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a seaside resort in the 19th century, after the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of an ancient timber bridge. The area continues to be well-liked nowadays as a holiday resort, with both South and North Beach lined with caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are found upon the east banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is most certainly approximately five millenia since the earliest settlements manifested in the area close to Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was probably not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. A further explanation is, the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (fairly large for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of 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 remaining building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there were 100 acres being cultivated. Since then the company has grown dramatically, and different varieties have been produced. Lavender is now exported all over the world.
