A seaside village and well loved holiday destination featuring some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 people and is probably most commonly known for its historic associations with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The area is also widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, due to the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties replacing an ancient wood bridge. Heacham is still well-liked these days as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores here are located on the east coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's most likely approximately five thousand yrs since the initial settlers emerged in the vicinity near Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was almost certainly not till the fifth century that the earliest real village was established there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any firm evidence of this. Another theory is that the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time was made up of 143 households (fairly big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church recall the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the venture has grown appreciably, and different varieties have been created. Lavender is today exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed via the the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
