A coastal village and well loved vacation resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most commonly known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, with the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 taking the place of an older wood bridge. The area remains favoured today as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are situated on the east banks of The Wash, this means it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is quite possibly roughly five millenia since the earliest settlers turned up in the vicinity around Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was quite possibly not until the fifth century when the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name is claimed to be derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any strong evidence that this is true. The other idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment was made up of one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet within the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, still she left a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has expanded significantly, and newer varieties have been raised. Lavender is today sold all around the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
