A village and well loved vacation destination with some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly 4,700 occupants and is possibly most famous for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's replacing the old wood bridge. The area is still popular today as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's quite possibly around 5,000 yrs since the 1st human settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was more than likely not until the 5th century that the 1st real village was set up there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence of this. Still another idea is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days contained one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly substantial for this times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she produced a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded substantially, and fresh new types have been produced. The lavender is currently sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is about 3 miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
