A seaside village and popular vacation resort offering some great beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is additionally known for its lavender fields, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a seaside resort in the 19th century, due to the coming of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The village continues to be well loved today as a holiday resort, with both the North and South Beaches dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, consequently it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's certainly roughly 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements occurred in the area close to Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was likely not till the 5th century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is claimed to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence of this. One additional idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported 143 households (making it pretty big for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she left a son called Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the company has evolved enormously, and new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
