A village and popular vacation destination beside some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of about five thousand people and is possibly best known for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get popular as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the older timber bridge. Heacham continues to be well-liked today as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beach peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are found upon the east shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's quite likely around five thousand yrs since the first settlers turned up in the region close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was in all probability not until the 5th century when the first actual village was founded there. The name of the village is claimed to be derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is true. One more idea is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty sizeable for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church tell of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died three years later, but she left a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. Four years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the venture has expanded appreciably, and new types have been produced. Lavender is today exported all throughout the world.
