A village and well loved holiday destination featuring some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 5,000 inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a tourist resort in the 19th century, mainly because of the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the olden wood bridge. The village still is favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is certainly more than 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements took place in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was very likely not until the fifth century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name is possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is a fact. Yet another idea is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment had 143 households (making it rather substantial for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet in the church record the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she left a son named Tom, who later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has evolved significantly, and fresh new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all throughout the world.
