A village and popular vacation resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The village is furthermore well known for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a holiday resort in Victorian times, a result of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace the old wood bridge. The village is just as well loved today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are found upon the eastern banks of The Wash, consequently it's one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

History of Heacham: It is possibly more than 5,000 years since the initial human settlements appeared in the area close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was most probably not till the 5th century that the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is reported to be taken from the name of a local Norman Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is a fact. One additional possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of 143 households (making it pretty big for this times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still older, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church tell of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nonetheless she left a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. Four years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early times the enterprise has expanded dramatically, and newer varieties have been reared. The lavender is currently exported all throughout the world.
