A village and well loved vacation resort offering some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of approximately four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is additionally reputed for its fields of lavender, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, due to the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to replace an old wood bridge. The area remains well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas here are placed on the east banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It is very likely around 5,000 years since the first human settlements materialized in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was perhaps not until the fifth century when the earliest actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is true. One additional thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time was made up of 143 households (making it pretty sizeable for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign as well as a tablet in the church record the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early times the company has expanded dramatically, and brand new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is these days exported all around the world.

The village can be go to by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
