A village and popular vacation destination having some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 5,000 people and is perhaps most commonly known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is furthermore well regarded for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, because of the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace the aged timber bridge. Heacham is still well loved today as a beach resort, with both North and South Beach being lined with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores at this point are found upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's likely more than five thousand years since the first human settlers emerged in the region around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was more than likely not until the 5th century that the earliest true village was set up there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any strong evidence of this. Yet another thought is, the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time incorporated one hundred and forty three households (quite substantial for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left a son called Tom, he later 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 set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the company has expanded greatly, and unique types have been bred. Lavender is now sold all around the globe.
