A coastal village and well known vacation resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally well known for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a sea side resort in the 19th century, due to the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 replacing the old timber bridge. Heacham is still popular today as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches here are located on the east shores of The Wash, which means it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham: It is undoubtedly approximately five thousand yrs since the initial settlers arrived in the vicinity near Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was likely not till the 5th century when the 1st genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is a fact. A different theory is, the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment supported 143 households (making it fairly large for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son called Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the venture has grown greatly, and fresh new varieties have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.

The village can be reached from the the A149 and the B1454, it is around three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
