A coastal village and well loved vacation resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its lavender fields, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become popular as a seaside resort in the 19th century, after the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of the older timber bridge. The village continues to be well loved today as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are found upon the eastern coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's probably around 5 millenia since the first human settlers emerged in the region close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was perhaps not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was set up there. The name is possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Still another theory is that the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (fairly sizeable for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away three years later, though she provided John with a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the venture has evolved significantly, and unique types have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all around the world.
