A seaside village and well known holiday destination with some outstanding beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get popular as a coastal resort in the 19th century, as a consequence of establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an dated wooden bridge. The area still is favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it is one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham: It's undoubtedly approximately five thousand years since the 1st settlements took place in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this. Human settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was almost certainly not until the 5th century when the earliest proper village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence that this is the truth. A different theory is that the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage incorporated 143 households (making it rather large for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the region was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, but she produced a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has evolved enormously, and unique varieties have been produced. The lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.
