A village and well loved holiday resort with some fine beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become known as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the establishing of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an out-of-date wooden bridge. The area is just as well loved today as a holiday resort, with both North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It's almost certainly around 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements occurred in the region surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was possibly not until the fifth century when the first genuine village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is the truth. A second explanation is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time comprised 143 households (rather substantial for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church record the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she died three years later, however she left a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early times the business has grown substantially, and fresh varieties have been produced. Lavender is now exported all around the globe.

The village can be go to by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
