A village and well loved vacation destination next to some superb beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become well liked as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, with the opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to take the place of the old wood bridge. The village is still well loved today as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beaches being dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham: It is quite possibly approximately 5,000 years since the initial settlements appeared in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was almost certainly not until the 5th century when the 1st genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence of this. A different idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time contained one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for this times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. 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 eldest existing building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church recall the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son called Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the venture has expanded appreciably, and unique varieties have been created. The lavender is today exported all around the world.
