A village and well known holiday destination having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly five thousand occupants and is possibly most widely known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, after the coming of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an ancient wood bridge. The area continues to be popular these days as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines here are found upon the easterly coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

History of Heacham: It's likely around 5 millenia since the initial settlements occurred in the vicinity near Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of that. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is the truth. One more explanation is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly large for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church recount the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. Four years later there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has grown considerably, and unique types have been propagated. The lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 5km (3 miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
