A coastal village and well known vacation resort adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly 4,707 inhabitants and is possibly most widely known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the obsolete timber bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The shorelines here are positioned upon the east shores of The Wash, meaning it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's quite possibly around five millenia since the initial settlements manifested in the region around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was possibly not until the 5th century that the 1st proper village was established there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is the truth. The other explanation is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days supported 143 households (quite substantial for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in truth even earlier, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church outline the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the company has expanded substantially, and new varieties have been bred. The lavender is now sold all around the globe.

The village can be accessed via the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
