A coastal village and popular vacation destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about five thousand occupants and is perhaps most famous for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The village is also widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a tourist resort in the 19th century, because of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 taking the place of an older wood bridge. The area still is favoured today as a holiday resort, with both the North and South Beaches peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, therefore it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is very likely approximately five millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the vicinity near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was most likely not until the fifth century that the 1st real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is claimed to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. A further possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage was made up of 143 households (making it pretty large for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church outline the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died three years later, but she left behind a son named Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the company has expanded significantly, and different varieties have been reared. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly three miles from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (14 miles) from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
