A coastal village and popular vacation destination offering some superb beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is possibly most widely known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is also widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 to replace an ancient timber bridge. The area is just as favoured these days as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are located upon the easterly coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is likely roughly five thousand years since the earliest human settlements manifested in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was very likely not until the fifth century that the first real village was established there. The name is reported to be derived from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence of this. A further idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage included 143 households (fairly large for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church recount the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died three years later, but she gave birth to a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early times the enterprise has grown appreciably, and fresh new varieties have been produced. Lavender is today sold all over the world.
