A village and popular holiday resort having some exceptional beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 4,707 people and is perhaps most widely known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is also well known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, just after the building of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the ancient wooden bridge. The village remains well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches here are located on the east shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is perhaps more than 5 millenia since the initial human settlers emerged in the region near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was most probably not until the 5th century that the first true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence of this. Still another theory is that the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times contained 143 households (rather big for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she gave birth to a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the business has evolved considerably, and different types have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is about three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
