A seaside village and well known holiday destination with some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most famous for its historic associations with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of the olden wood bridge. Heacham continues to be popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beach being peppered with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are found on the eastern banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is likely more than five thousand yrs since the initial human settlers colonized in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was most probably not until the 5th century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. A further possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage supported 143 households (pretty big for this time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the business has expanded greatly, and brand new types have been propagated. The lavender is currently exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (14 miles) from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
