A seaside village and well known vacation resort offering some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 5,000 occupants and is possibly most recognized for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become well liked as a sea side resort in the 19th century, simply because of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham continues to be well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are located on the east coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's quite likely over five millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the region close to Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was likely not until the fifth century that the first true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence that this is true. A second theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then consisted of one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in truth still older, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early times the venture has evolved substantially, and new types have been bred. The lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be go to by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
