A village and well loved holiday destination with some great beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately five thousand occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a holiday resort in Victorian times, due to the opening of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing the out-of-date wooden bridge. The village is just as well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are found on the eastern shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's very likely approximately five millenia since the 1st human settlers showed up in the vicinity close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the first real village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. A further possibility is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (rather big for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved enormously, and fresh varieties have been reared. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
