A coastal village and well known holiday resort alongside some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, soon after the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace the outmoded wood bridge. Heacham continues to be well-liked today as a beach resort, with both the South and North Beach replete with caravan sites.

The beaches here are positioned upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is undoubtedly approximately 5 millenia since the first human settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was almost certainly not till the fifth century that the earliest genuine village was set up there. The name is considered to be derived from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any reliable evidence of this. A further explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it rather substantial for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she gave birth to a son called Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the venture has grown dramatically, and new varieties have been raised. Lavender is these days sold all around the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
