A coastal village and well loved holiday destination featuring some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its historic links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally well regarded for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a tourist resort in the 19th century, after the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's in order to replace the obsolete wooden bridge. The area remains well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beaches dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is most certainly approximately 5,000 years since the earliest settlements appeared in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was most likely not till the 5th century when the first actual village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence of this. The other theory is that the name originates from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time supported 143 households (making it rather sizeable for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away three years later, though she left a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the enterprise has expanded greatly, and unique types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all around the globe.
