A coastal village and well loved holiday resort adjacent to some great beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most commonly known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore known for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in Victorian times, with the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the old wooden bridge. The village continues to be well-liked nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach replete with caravan sites.

The seashores in this area are set on the eastern coast of The Wash, this means that it's one of the few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It's likely roughly five millenia since the 1st human settlers showed up in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was most probably not till the fifth century when the earliest true village was founded there. The name is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any reliable evidence that this is true. Another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time was made up of 143 households (fairly substantial for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet inside the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son called Tom, he later on returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and fresh varieties have been propagated. The lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
