A village and well known holiday destination offering some excellent beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is possibly most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be known as a beach resort in Victorian times, after the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 in order to replace an old wood bridge. The area is still favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The seashores here are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's undoubtedly around 5 millenia since the first human settlements appeared in the area close to Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was in all likelihood not until the 5th century when the earliest proper village was established there. The name "Heacham" is possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no reliable evidence that this is true. One additional idea it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment supported 143 households (fairly substantial for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from around 1100, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church tell of the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, nonetheless she produced a son called Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early times the company has expanded greatly, and fresh new varieties have been produced. The lavender is currently sold all over the world.
