A village and well known vacation destination alongside some wonderful beaches, Heacham is stationed in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably most famous for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, grown by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become known as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. The area remains favoured these days as a beach resort, with both South and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at Heacham are found on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's History: It is in all probability roughly five thousand years since the first human settlers colonized in the area around Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was probably not till the 5th century that the earliest actual village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence that this is true. Another thought it was named after the local River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times incorporated 143 households (quite large for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the village was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the venture has grown appreciably, and newer types have been propagated. The lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
