A seaside village and well known vacation resort alongside some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably best known for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is additionally known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a sea side resort in the 19th century, simply because of the building of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 replacing an older wood bridge. The area is just as popular today as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach replete with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning it's one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is possibly approximately five thousand yrs since the first human settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was probably not till the 5th century that the 1st actual village was established there. The name of the village is supposed to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is true. One additional explanation is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then incorporated 143 households (pretty substantial for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she left a son named Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. 4 years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the business has grown substantially, and fresh new varieties have been raised. The lavender is nowadays sold all over the world.
