A seaside village and well known vacation resort having some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 5,000 occupants and is probably most famous for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, following the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an ancient timber bridge. The area remains popular these days as a beach resort, with both the South and North Beaches replete with caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are found upon the eastern shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's most probably roughly five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlers arrived in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was possibly not until the 5th century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is a fact. A different possibility is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days consisted of 143 households (making it rather substantial for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even older, dating from about 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church recount the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early days the enterprise has evolved enormously, and different types have been raised. Lavender is these days sold all over the world.
