A village and well loved vacation destination beside some outstanding beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, just after the arrival of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's in order to replace an older wooden bridge. The village is still well-liked nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan parks.

The beaches here are located on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, therefore it's one of the few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is in all likelihood over 5,000 yrs since the 1st human settlers showed up in the region around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was perhaps not until the 5th century when the first real village was set up there. The name is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Norman Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is the truth. Another explanation is, the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage supported 143 households (pretty large for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of 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 oldest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left a son, Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early years the business has evolved enormously, and fresh new varieties have been raised. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is around 5 kilometres (3 miles) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (14 miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
