A coastal village and well loved holiday destination with some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around five thousand inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, due to the opening of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of the old wood bridge. Heacham continues to be popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, which means it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It's in all probability roughly five millenia since the 1st human settlers arrived in the vicinity close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was probably not till the 5th century when the 1st actual village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is true. Yet another possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it rather substantial for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church recall the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left behind a son named Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the venture has grown significantly, and fresh new types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all around the world.

The village can be reached via the the A149 and the B1454, it is around 3 miles from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
