A seaside village and well loved vacation resort with some great beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of around five thousand people and is possibly most famous for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the coming of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an older wood bridge. Heacham remains favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, which means it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's possibly more than 5,000 years since the earliest human settlers arrived in the vicinity near Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was quite likely not until the fifth century when the earliest actual village was set up there. The name is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. One more idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage incorporated 143 households (making it fairly big for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church recall the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she left a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early days the venture has grown greatly, and unique varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is today exported all around the world.
