A village and popular holiday destination boasting some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is probably most widely known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, a result of the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of the older wooden bridge. The village still is popular these days as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are positioned upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, therefore it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is most certainly roughly five thousand yrs since the first human settlements manifested in the region near Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the first true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is believed to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. A further thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by 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 most ancient existing structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son called Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of producing and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the enterprise has expanded considerably, and fresh new types have been created. Lavender is these days exported all around the world.
