A coastal village and well loved vacation resort featuring some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly five thousand occupants and is probably most widely known for its historic associations with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a holiday resort in the 19th century, a result of the building of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's to take the place of an oudated timber bridge. The area still is popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches at this point are situated on the eastern banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is certainly around 5 millenia since the first human settlements manifested in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was perhaps not till the fifth century when the first real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. A different explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then comprised 143 households (pretty sizeable for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, 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 Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she produced a son called Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the business has grown greatly, and fresh new varieties have been bred. The lavender is currently exported all around the world.
