A coastal village and popular holiday resort with some exceptional beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of approximately 5,000 people and is perhaps best known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a holiday resort in Victorian times, a result of the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the olden timber bridge. Heacham is still well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both South and North Beach lined with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's in all probability over five thousand years since the 1st settlements took place in the area near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the first real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. A further thought is that the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is actually still older, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, still she provided John with a son named Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the company has evolved significantly, and different varieties have been produced. Lavender is today exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed via the the A149 and the B1454, it is about 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
