A village and popular holiday resort having some awesome beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,700 people and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a seaside resort in the 19th century, due to the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the aged timber bridge. The village remains well-liked today as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are situated upon the easterly banks of The Wash, which means it is one of the 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's likely over five millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the vicinity around Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was very likely not until the fifth century when the 1st proper village was established there. The name "Heacham" is said to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any firm evidence that this is true. A second theory is that the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time contained one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is in truth still older, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church outline the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the venture has expanded appreciably, and different varieties have been bred. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
