A seaside village and well known holiday destination having some terrific beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly five thousand inhabitants and is probably best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a holiday resort in the 19th century, due to the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the aged timber bridge. Heacham still is favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches lined with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the east shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's very likely over five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements occurred in the region near Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was quite likely not until the fifth century when the first actual village was founded there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is the truth. An additional thought is, the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then had 143 households (quite sizeable for the times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church tell of the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has expanded dramatically, and fresh varieties have been bred. The lavender is these days sold all over the world.

The village can be entered by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
