A coastal village and well loved holiday destination alongside some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get fashionable as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, a result of the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's taking the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham is just as favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas here are positioned upon the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's possibly more than 5 millenia since the initial settlers colonized in the area surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the earliest real village was established there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Yet another theory is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time consisted of 143 households (pretty sizeable for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was ruled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she gave birth to a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. Four years later there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has evolved significantly, and new types have been nurtured. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
